Delhi Airport rolls out e-gate pass facility at cargo terminal

Mumbai: The GMR group-run Delhi Airport on Wednesday announced the rollout of an e-gate pass facility at its cargo terminal, which is expected to reduce physical contact of a person in gaining entry to the complex besides making the entire process hassle-free. 
The first paperless and contactless QR-coded e-gate pass facility at the cargo terminal has come up in association with Celebi and DSCC, the two cargo terminal operators, as well as Delhi Cargo Brokers Association, the Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL) said in a release.

DIAL is a joint venture between a GMR Group-led consortium and the Airports Authority of India.

According to DIAL, the move is in line with the announcement at a recent Permanent Trade Facilitation Committee (PTFC) that the e-gate pass facility would be open to all stakeholders, effective July 1, as an optional service and mandatory from July 15.

This initiative is aimed at minimising human contact in these challenging COVID-19 times. The e-gate pass facility for import cargo delivery will not only help in ensuring social distancing by reducing human contact at the terminal, but will also expedite the process and save time, the airport operator said.

With new mechanism for entry in place at the cargo terminal, the airlines, consolidators or freight forwarders will now have to upload the scanned copy of Master Airway Bill/House Airway Bill in the custodian system, it said, adding that the Bill of Entry (BoE) and Out of Charge (OoC) will be transmitted electronically by the Customs to the custodian system.
