new Delhi: Henley & Partners has released a list of the world’s most powerful passports. India Passport Index is ranked 85 on the 2021 list. India, which was ranked 84th last year, has dropped one place this time. India scored 58 runs in the list. This means that Indian passport holders can travel to 58 countries with the help of a single passport without prior visa. Along with Tajikistan, India got this rank. The list is based on the number of countries that allow only passports without a tourist visa. This means that you can get a visa there after landing in that country.
