Stamping of boarding cards at airports may soon become history, says report
Soon domestic flyers from Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru may not need their boarding cards stamped after clearing pre-embarkation frisking, reported The Times of India.
According to the report, Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) has approached Delhi and Bengaluru airports to carry out the pilot project that will end the practice of frisking.
“Hyderabad has already done a pilot for this. We are asking Delhi and Bengaluru to do the same. Boarding card stamping need not end only when the bigger diga-yatra (paperless biometric boarding for domestic flyers) project kicks off and it can happen earlier at some airports,” a senior CISF official was quoted saying in the report.
Earlier, the report said, CISF and aviation authorities had also stopped stamping hand bag tags at several airports.
The development comes after CISF’s new Director General Rajesh Ranjan recently told The Times of India that he ‘wanted to enhance passenger experience at airports by taking steps like stopping boarding card stamping.’
