I am flying domestically with a friend who only has a suburban Mumbai railway pass to use as ID (he is 15 years old). It has a photo. Is this sufficient id for gaining entry to the airport?

I am afraid it won't be of any use. He can use a school/college I Card.

approved ID

Does anyone know what the actual, officially accepted forms of ID are for use at airports? And I don't mean what you think they are, but what the government says they are

Why don't you google it and then you can get the information 'straight from the horse's mouth' and not rely on what people think it is.

Any domestic airline website should give you the list of ID's acceptable. Do post what you get.

I spoke to the airline and they said the standard thing, ie only photo ID such as drivers license, passport, pan card are accepted. But when pressed the rep spoke to her supervisor who said that an affidavit stating that an advocate has cited the person and confirms their identity would also be sufficient. I didnt have time to arrange this. So we risked it and went to the airport with just his railway pass - and of course he got through without any problem! So the answer is - it shouldn't work but it does. (but I wouldn't want to rely on it regularly)

Well as long as you are travelling in a group, *usually* the people at the counter and the CISF at the airport gate require just one in the group to show an ID. I traveled from Chennai to Delhi with my wife today morning and at both the places I just showed my ID and it was enough.

This is such an open-ended query without any meaningful information, like where you are in India, whether you have booked a ticket yet, and if she's on same PNR (I presume she would as she has no means of booking a flight without necessary tools). Short answer - Get an ID made for her.

Without a proper photo identity card one will not be able to enter the airport.

I think Only PAN card works. No other ID they would accept.

Wouldn't a passport or Aadhar card be accepted?

Not true. Any photo ID issued by State/Local or federal authority. Passports, Driving License among the mix.

ID cards of reputed public sector companies and banks are also accepted, along with credit cards having a photo of the holder.
