The government of India has decided to do away with stamping of hand baggage at seven major airports from April 1.

The government has decided to do away with stamping of hand baggage at seven major airports from April 1. The CISF said that replacing this system will be a new ‘passenger-friendly’ security set-up put in place at seven airports. “The procedure of stamping and putting tags on the hand baggage of passengers 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 OP Singh said as quoted by news agency Press Trust of India.

Here is the list of 7 airports that will discontinue stamping hand baggage from tomorrow:
  • Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport
  • Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport
  • Kolkata’s Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport
  • Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport
  • Ahmedabad’s Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport
  • Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport
  • Kochi’s Cochin International Airport
According to reports, over 300 smart and high definition CCTV cameras have been deployed at these seven airports and the length of rollers at the baggage checking machines has also been increased. AN increased number of CCTV cameras at these seven airports will also help ensure security. According to the PTI report, the CISF, which had earlier blocked the move announced by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), has been assured that a good number of cameras will have power backup facility in case of an outage.
