Delhi airport implements one-handbag rule with few exceptions

New Delhi: In order to avoid any inconvenience to the passenger during the security check, the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi has implemented a new rule, under which, a passenger can carry only one piece of hand luggage as cabin luggage.

As per the report by the Live Mint, the airport's officials informed that keeping in mind the advisory from the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) and Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), only one piece of hand baggage is permitted per passenger.

While the airport authorities will strictly monitor that this rule is being followed, there are a few expectations.
