1,000 immigration officials to be hired for IGI airport

New Delhi: The home ministry will hire 1,000 officials who will be deployed at immigration counters in Delhi's Indira Gandhi International airport in a bid to end serpentine queues and ease travel woes, officials said today.
The competent authority has given approval to the Bureau of Immigration for appointing 1,000 immigration assistants on a contractual basis, a home ministry official said.
Approval has also been given for the conversion of 350 posts from higher to lower grade, thereby giving more scope to recruit ex-servicemen from the Intelligence Bureau and Central Armed Police Force on contractual basis.
The deployment of additional personnel will augment manpower strength at immigration counters to enable the staff to provide professional and courteous service to travellers, an official said.
He did not specify the time frame for when this would happen.
