Don't bother about stamping baggage at airport any more

Chennai: Chennai airport has done away with stamping of baggage tags for cabin baggage from Monday after Central Industrial Security Force implemented the no-baggage stamping policy.
A senior official of Airports Authority of India said the first day went without a hassle as the authorities has already completed a week long trail in the first week of last month "The move has eliminated an unnecessary inconvenience for the passengers. Now, they can just walk in for security check after checking in and getting a boarding pass from the airline counter," he added.
Earlier, passengers who had more than one small baggage used to miss tagging and were sent back by the CISF men to the counter to obtain tags. This created a lot of confusion among passengers. airport director G Chandramouli said, "We got order to implement the system on Wednesday."
With this Chennai airport has joined airports like Ahmedabad where baggage stamping has been done away with.
