IGI airport to get body scanner

The IGI airport will soon have a full body scanner. It is a part of the pending efforts to upgrade security at the airport that records 60,000 out-bound travellers a day.
The machine, which produces an X-ray image of a person, is a standard security device in many airports worldwide. It has attracted criticism because people are uncomfortable with the full-body image it produces.
In the fray, 60 CISF personnel training have been started.
The scanners will be installed at Terminal 1 for trial from January 1, 2017.
It is to be noted that IGI will be the first airport in the country where complete body scanning facility will be available.
