As India secures its spot as the world’s most rapidly growing aviation market, the government is redoubling its efforts to provide top-tier facilities and infrastructure for the nation’s major airports. Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia have been actively reviewing these vital infrastructural elements.
The ministers’ focus is currently on the critical task of streamlining procedures, aiming for a quick, safe and efficient travel experience for passengers. They have also mandated relevant authorities to follow suit, reiterating the urgency of these improvements given the mounting volume of domestic air traffic.
This commitment to airport advancement is not without considerable support. A spokesperson from the home ministry has confirmed that various agencies, including the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA), are actively involved in significant steps to expand and upgrade facilities at major hubs.
“The meeting aimed to address requirements arising out of fast-growing domestic and international aviation mobility in the country,” the spokesperson noted, citing the words of the two ministers during their review of airport facilities and infrastructure.
The review and subsequent meetings gathered key representatives across a spectrum of agencies. These included the likes of Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla, the Intelligence Bureau (IB), the Bureau of Immigration (BoI), the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), and the Airports Authority of India (AAI). The government’s concerted efforts to bolster infrastructure and manpower, particularly at places like Delhi airport, represent a steadfast response to the ever-increasing demands of domestic air travel.
