Need to double airport strength in 5 years: CISF

New Delhi: Adding more peak hour flights at India's biggest airports without augmenting the security manpower and infrastructure is proving to be a pain for both passengers — who have to wait in long queues — and for personnel — who are under 'undue' pressure to speed up frisking.
Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), the agency in charge of airport security, has stated this categorically in a report to the government. It has projected that the paramilitary force will need to almost double its airport deployment in the next five years given the explosive growth of air travel in India.
And failing to do so in time could lead to "chaos" and make our big airports "unmanageable", its report submitted to the home and aviation ministries recently and accessed by TOI says.
