Hand bag tags not required for domestic flyers
Carrying Hand bag was a burden on domestic traveler in past. But now travelers are going to get some relief with a new stamp free hand baggage initiative of CISF (Central Industrial Security Force). Since April 1st 2017, Central Industrial Security Force had first initiated this new system at seven airports of Delhi, Mumbai, Cochin, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Ahmedabad. Domestic travelers will be able to get some relief while carrying their baggage.
The old stamping process of hand baggage was little uncomfortable and lengthy for both travelers and security staff. Customer experience was not up to the mark because of this. Authorities were getting continuous complaints because of this. Tagging & stamping hand baggage consume time. If it is not done correctly, then security staff will ask the customer to go back and get it done again which make a passenger irate and bring down the customer experience with airlines.
CISF Director General O P Singh took a very bold step to smoothen the process. The Central Industrial Security Force had first initiated this new system at seven airports of Delhi, Mumbai, Cochin, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Ahmedabad from April 1 2017.
However, the new protocols are only for domestic travelers. Passengers who are travelling to international destinations will have to get their hand baggage tags stamped as usual.
Being a traveler, it is a big relief for me. I believe this is one of the good initiatives by CISF. Please let us know if you also think so. You can also share if you have any past experience related to hand baggage tagging and stamping process. We love to hear real-time experiences from different domestic and international travelers around the world.
