No more security stamps on hand bag tags at 6 airports: CISF

NEW DELHI: Passengers flying from six major airports in the country will soon travel hassle-free as the mandatory practise of getting a security stamp on their hand baggage is being done away with by the CISF as part of a pilot project to smoothen air travel.

A decision in this regard was today firmed up during a high-level meeting between the airport security brass of the security force and top executives of over a dozen major airlines operating in the country.

“Starting December 15, we are beginning a pilot project at six major airports where passengers will not be required to get the security stamp on the tags on their hand baggages. They can get their other security checks done and board their flights. This is a passenger friendly measure that we have initiated,” CISF Director General O P Singh told reporters after the meeting here.

The pilot project will be started at airports in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru.

The CISF DG added that the initiative will be extended to other airports too, based on the feedback received. (AGENCIES)
