Aviation Ministry To Reach Out To Home Ministry Over CISF Dues


The Ministry of Civil Aviation is soon expected to approach the Ministry of Home Affairs with an aim to resolve the ongoing tussle between the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) — which manages security at major airports — and the airport operators that owe the security agency for its services.

While the CISF has threatened to gradually withdraw its security cover from the Delhi airport if the dues are not cleared by September, airport operators have blamed the rising costs behind non-payment of dues and sought an increase in passenger service fee (PSF) to meet the expenses.

Notably, Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL) alone owes over Rs 600 crore to CISF, while Airports Authority of India (AAI) is short of around Rs 100 crore every year in its dues to the agency. Read More
