Boarding pass stamping may soon be passe

New Delhi:  Soon, domestic passengers flying out of Mumbai, Bengaluru and Delhi won’t need to get their boarding passes stamped “security checked”. Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) has written to these three airports to conduct a pilot project at the earliest. Hyderabad airport already has this system in place.
CISF’s head of airport security, M A Ganapathy, on July 18 wrote to the CEOs of Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore airports (DIAL, MIAL and BIAL, respectively) to stop stamping of boarding cards of domestic flyers. A senior CISF official said MIAL “is very keen to do a pilot”. The Mumbai airport management is learnt to have approached both CISF and Bureau of Civil Aviation Security for the same.
MIAL has discussed its blueprint with security authorities, it is learnt. Sources said the pilot project is proposed to be carried out at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) Terminal 2 for domestic passengers of Air India, Jet Airways and Vistara. The pre-embarkation security check (PESC) area will have HD CCTVs to capture a clear picture of passengers as well as security personnel frisking them.
