CISF to exempt baggage stamping at 7 airports
In order to facilitate hassle free travel to air passengers, Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) would not carry stamping of baggage at seven airports including Patna, Lucknow and Jaipur on trial basis. The decision follows the week-long pilot project at airports in metros like Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai and Kolkata.
The decision to do away with stamping of baggage at seven airports i.e. Patna, Guwahati, Nagpur, Kochi, Jaipur, Lucknow and Thiruvananthapuram has been taken on a trial basis to study how much time is saved by doing this.
After studying the outcome of the trial of doing without stamping of baggage, the CISF would take a decision by January 26 next if it could be made a permanent feature at all the airports.
