Aadhar card mandatory for Delhi airport employees from January 1: CISF

The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) has asked the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) to make Aadhar card mandatory for all Delhi airport employees from January 1, Indian Express reported.

The CISF, which is responsible for the airport security, has proposed that nobody is issued an Airport Entry Permit (AEP) without an Aadhar card.

Over 36,000 airport employees were issued Airport Entry Permits every year. All employees are physically checked by CISF security personnel before entering the terminal building and are issued plastic card to access secure areas in the buildings.

“Since, almost every citizen now has an Aadhaar card, we will make it mandatory for them to carry it. Usually, we just check the airport pass but from now, our staff will ask for Aadhaar card also,” CISF DG OP Singh was quoted by Hindustan Times as saying.

The sources quoted by Indian Express said the decision was taken after several instances came to fore wherein sacked or terminated employees were found to be gaining entry through different hiring agencies.

The Director General of CISF, O P Singh, also asked the Chief Airport Security Officer (CASO) of IGI Airport to start maintaining a data bank of all employees, including those who have been dismissed or sacked by any agency working at the airport.
