CISF gets best airport security award from World Quality Congress

New Delhi: The security provided by Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) at Delhi airport has been awarded the 'best airport security'+ by the World Quality Congress (WQC).
It is the first time that a central paramilitary force has been recognized by WQC for its standards and professionalism in providing security. Around 56 million passengers use IGI airport every year. The independent body usually awards private sector companies for their standards in providing quality service.
The award will be given to the CISF at WQC's annual event in Mumbai on July 6.
The achievement comes barely three months after Airport Council International's airport service quality (ASQ) rating found that security at Delhi airport was better than Heathrow, Dallas, Los Angeles, Dubai and Paris airports.
When contacted, CISF director general O P Singh told TOI, "CISF has continuously excelled and evolved in providing security as a service and our men posted at the airports have demonstrated leadership qualities while dealing with thousands of passengers every day, taking care of threats and partnering with different stakeholders."
