Udaipur airport has been identified as one of ten more airports in the country where practice of stamping domestic passengers’ hand baggage tags will soon be done away with. Already, 17 airports in the country are stamp-free.
Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), tasked to secure 59 civil airports against terror and security threats, will soon launch a trial of the new system at Amritsar, Chandigarh, Varanasi, Udaipur, Dibrugarh, Nagpur, Managalore, Trichy, Pune and Ranchi airports.
“We will be conducting the trial at ten more airports. Once the trials are successful, we would be bringing these ten airports under the stamp-free hand baggage regime by this month end or early October,” CISF Director General OP Singh told PTI.
DG Singh had maintained that the new measure will enhance “passenger experience and provide hassle free security environment to them” while travelling through the airports.
