More airport security deployed in India

The Indian Government has deployed more than 1,300 additional security personnel for guarding key airports across the country in the last five months as part of a systematic enhancement of surveillance during the Commonwealth Games.

The decision was taken by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), civil aviation ministry and the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) and chaired by Union home secretary GK Pilai, in May.

The government has since sanctioned 879 new posts of security personnel drawn from the CISF for the Indira Gandhi International Airport at Delhi, 120 posts for Jabalpur airport in Madhya Pradesh, 29 posts for Jorhat airport and 275 posts at Ahmedabad airport.

The CISF is guarding about 58 airports across the country and the paramilitary force along with the BCAS has prepared a blue-print to plug loopholes and fortify both the air and city sides of the airports.
