Indian Passport Jumps 10 Places on Global Index

Indian Passport

Time was when holding an Indian passport would be seen as a disadvantage among other citizens of other countries. Who cannot remember the embarrassment of having to go through long visa procedures when visiting abroad, while seeing people from other countries being able to travel freely? But as the countrys economy and global presence is growing, Indians are being welcomed by more countries in the world.

Hitherto countries that saw Indians as only being keen on obtaining illegal entry and people to be shunned and checked are now viewing Indians as tourists who are not shy of spending money and boosting the local economy. As a result, many countries are wooing Indians by offering the option for Visa Free Travel.
