To curb illegal airport entries, CISF seeks barcoded e-tickets
To prevent illegal entry of people at airports, CISF has sought uniform electronic tickets with barcode as well as barcode readers at the departure gates. The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), which provides security cover at airports, detected 34 cases of persons entering the terminal building of the airport in the national capital during the last 14 months, according to Union Minister Jayant Sinha. "The persons caught were handed over to Delhi Police for further legal action in the matter," the Minister of State for Civil Aviation said in a written reply to the Lok Sabha on Thursday. On whether CISF has asked for installing PNR readers at the airport gates to the check illegal entry, Sinha replied in the affirmative.
