New Delhi: Passengers flying from six major airports in the country will soon travel hassle-free as the mandatory practise of getting a security stamp on their hand baggage is being done away with by the CISF as part of a pilot project to smoothen air travel.

The pilot project will be started at airports in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru.

As per the existing rules all passengers flying to a destination, either within the country or abroad with cabin baggage must carry a tag which is stamped by security personnel after it has been scanned. If the passengers forget to carry the tag, they are not allowed to proceed further.

The stamp ensures that the baggage has been thoroughly checked and is safe to be carried in the plane.

However, with the increase of technology by way of scanning a bag through x-ray, CCTV and a trained CISF security personnel on the spot, such a tag is not anymore required and hence is being done away with by way of a pilot project.

Passengers had also made numerous complaints in the past not only with the CISF but also with airport authorities that in case a passenger forgets to get that stamp, he or she, irrespective of their age or medical condition, had to go back and get the authorisation embossed which was a time taking and nagging affair.
