- The move to provide hassle free security environment to passengers
- Other airports will soon get the new system of baggage security
The other airports which will see the new system of baggage security coming in include the ones in Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Cochin and Ahmedabad.
"The system of stamping and putting tags on the hand baggage of fliers will be dispensed with from April 1 at seven airports. We have put in place the required security systems that will help us in ushering in this passenger-friendly move," CISF Director General O P Singh told PTI.
The move, the CISF chief said, will enhance "passenger experience and provide hassle free security environment to them".
Mr Singh said his personnel have been updated about the new protocol and that he himself had seen the preparations made in this regard at the Bengaluru airport on Wednesday.
