Airport surveys to do away with baggage tags are on: Minister

"We are piloting this across various airports and must ensure security across entire network. We will study results and then take a decision," Sinha tweeted on Monday.

The step is aimed at facilitating hassle-free movement of the passengers and bringing down the time consumed at the airports.

The central government had earlier on December 15 initiated a trial run for 'non-stamping' of passengers' baggage tag at the time of boarding the aircraft which thus made the tags redundant.

The week-long trial run for all domestic passengers was earlier initiated by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) at six airports: Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Kolkata and Ahmedabad.
