House panel supports special scanners to reduce airport check-in delays.

TO SAVE TIME at airport security check-in, the Parliamentary Standing Committee has recommended that the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) consult with the Ministry of Civil Aviation about installing scanners based on computed tomography – an imaging procedure using special x-ray equipment – at airports so that passengers do not have to remove electronic items from their hand baggage.

“The Committee observes that passenger traffic in airports has increased over time. Passengers are obliged to remove computers, tablets, and other electronic devices from their luggage during security check-in, which causes inconvenience and waste of time,” said the panel Standing Committee on Demands for Grants linked to the MHA in its report given to Parliament on March 17.

“As a result, the Committee recommends that the MHA take up the topic with Civil Aviation regarding the installation of Computed Tomography scanners at airports, which will eliminate the necessity for fly passengers to remove electronic goods from their hand baggage.” According to the article, this will expedite the security process and allow travellers to check in more quickly at airports.

The House panel, led by BJP Rajya Sabha member Brij Lal, also claimed in the report that the airport operators are delaying the supply of equipment to the CISF, which is in charge of airport security.

“The Committee was informed that the equipment is delivered to CISF by the airport operators and that technology is being updated on a daily basis so that CISF is placing a need for new equipment with the airport operators to keep up with technological innovation.” Moreover, there are delays/gaps in the airport operators’ supply of equipment,” according to the report.
