From next year, airport visitors to be under CCTV scanner

Pune: Keeping in mind the increasing threat of terror strikes at key installations in the country, the city airport will soon get a closed circuit television (CCTV) surveillance system.
The security upgrade, to be taken up by Airports Authority of India (AAI) in six airports across the nation, will be in place early next year after the current terminal expansion works are completed.
Close to 100 CCTV cameras will be installed at all vital spots including the terminal building, apron area, car parking, immigration and customs area, visitor’s lounge and entry and exit points. A central control room with multiple screens will be used to monitor the movement of all visitors and passengers within and outside the airport.
Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), which handles airports security in the country, will operate the CCTV system. CISF personnel will receive enhanced training to man the system.
