New Delhi: The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) has decided to do away with stamping of hand baggage tags at seven airports from April 1, an official said on Thursday.

Airports at Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Cochin and Ahmedabad have been chosen for the new system to "upgrade" the security system for the convenience of passengers.

"The present system of stamping of hand baggage tags at pre-embarkation security check points for these seven airports shall be dispensed with from April 1, 2017," CISF Director General OP Singh said.

The CISF chief said the step would enhance the passenger experience and provide hassle-free security environment at airports without compromising with the security requirements.

Singh said the paramilitary force, responsible for the security of 59 airports across India, had taken appropriate measures to "upgrade the security system by adopting this new system for the convenience of passengers".

"The system will speed up the security check procedure and will give more time to CISF personnel for checking of suspected baggage," he added.
