AAI to deploy private security personnel at 60 airports for non-core duties

Mumbai, Sep 23 (PTI) CISF personnel performing non-core duties at 60 airports in the country will be replaced by private security personnel, an official release said on Friday.

The move will reduce the security expenditure, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) said, and added that "these CISF personnel can be deployed at other airports which will further strengthen the security set-up." "In line with the decision of the central government, a total of 1,924 private security agency personnel will be deployed at 60 airports in place of CISF personnel, posted at non-core duty posts," AAI said in the release.

AAI also said it has appointed 581 security personnel from Directorate General Resettlement (DGR)-sponsored security agencies for non-core posts at 45 airports.
