Airport security: UP for Gorakhpur model

Lucknow: The Gorakhpur model of airport security can be adopted by other airports of the state by gradually withdrawing the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) and deploying the recently announced UP Special Security Force (UPSSF).

Giving this information to TOI here on Wednesday, additional chief secretary, home, AwanishAwasthi said, “Yes we are considering to have the state’s own security force at all the vital installations, including airports. It would also reduce financial burden on airports.”
Awasthi said that the civil aviation part of the Gorakhpur airport is manned by the UP police and not by the CISF as has been done at other airports. “This is also one of the reasons why theGorakhpur airport is in profit, while earnings of other airports are on the negative side. The CISFsecurity is expensive and it causes additional burden on airports,” he claimed.
