At present, those going abroad need to fill in details such as name, date of birth, passport number, address in India, flight number and date of boarding in the departure card.
"The same information (about the passengers) is available in the system from other sources," the home ministry order said, citing reasons behind its move.
The decision will help reducing the time required to complete immigration related formalities by passengers and also enable airports and authorities concerned to cater to a larger number of people.
The need for Indians to fill such cards on their arrival in India has already been done away with.
Authorities here have been taking a number of steps to help both international and domestic passengers.
Those carrying prohibited and dutiable goods are required to fill up an 'Indian Customs Declaration Form', earlier mandatory for all passengers entering the country.
The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), mandated to to secure civil airports in the country, has also started doing away with the practice of tagging and stamping domestic passengers' hand baggage.
It has ended at Delhi, Mumbai, Cochin, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Ahmedabad, some of the country's busiest airports.
