‘One Hand Bag’ Rule For All Passengers

Bureau of Civil Aviation Security has ordered a new rule where each passenger will be allowed to carry only one hand bag with them in flights. This is applicable to all passengers that are taking domestic flights across India.

The new rule has come to reduce congestion at security checks at airports. The rule has also been made to reduce work stress of security check points. The decision bars passengers from carrying more than one cabin baggage on domestic flights. However some exceptions have been listed in the circular released.

CISF has asked Airport Authorities to implement new rule after it recognized that security checks are getting clogged. They were increasing the risk of infection among passengers and staff at airports.

Airport security is guarded by CISF. An order released by CISF said, “As per BCAS AVSEC Circular Nos. 06/2000 & Lt12000, no passenger should be permitted to carry more than one hand bag other than those items already listed in the circular including lady’s bag.”

Order said, “However, it has been seen that passengers on an average carry 02-03 Nos of hand bags to the screening point. This has led to increased clearance time as well as delays, congestion in PESC point and inconvenience to passengers. It is therefore felt that enforcement of the aforesaid Circulars must be ensured by all stakeholders/airlines.”

“All airlines may be directed suitably to inform passengers and to display “one hand bag rule’ on their tickets/boarding passes very conspicuously,” read the order.

“Airport Operators may be instructed to place hoarding/banner/board/ standees displaying the contents of the ‘One hand bag Rule’ near the check-in counters, vantage locations before SHA (security hold areas) at the airports, so that passengers get sensitized and if required, have an option to switch their extra hand bags to registered baggage,” the order read.
