Airports around the country including the city’s Maharana Pratap Airport increase their security ahead of Republic Day on 26 January. Airport administration has advised the passengers to co-operate with the security systems. No visitor passes will be issued during this period.
The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) has increased the number of security personnel deployed at all the domestic and international airports around the country. The agency has tightened security measures including scanning of luggage and frisking of passengers. Any private or public vehicle will not be allowed beyond the parking area. The Airport Authority has appointed CISF teams and dog squads at the main entrance to check all vehicles, luggage and passengers for security purposes.
Airlines are also advising passengers to reach the airport two hours before the scheduled departure of their flights to avoid any inconvenience.
Every Independence and Republic Day, the security at the airport is increased than the usual in all the states and cities. This is just to take adequate precautions.
