Shifting of security cost to government will lead to cheaper air tickets

There is a new thinking on airport security in the ministry of civil aviation (MoCA), which views it as a sovereign function and believe that air passengers should not be charged for it.

The Economic Times on Tuesday reported that the MoCA will approach Ministry of Finance with a proposal that the Government of India and not the passengers themselves should pay for the cost of security at airports and other aviation establishments in the country.

ET also said that the aviation ministry has the support of Home Ministry for this proposal.

The proposal if approved by all organs of the government and brought into practice , it will lead to reduction of passenger fees.
