Hike in security fees at airports from July 1

According to the reports of The Hindu (TH), government has raised the fees to be paid by passengers for security at airports to INR 150 from INR 130 per flight, effective July 1.

The move follows demands from airport operators who said they were unable to foot the bill for deployment of CISF. Various airports owed nearly INR 750 crore to the paramilitary force that provides security at 59 out of the nearly 105 airports in the country. The remaining are under other forces like the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), the India Reserve Battalions (IRBs) or state police units.

“Aviation Security Fee for domestic passengers will be levied at the rate of INR 150 per embarking passenger. Aviation Security Fee for international passengers will be levied at the rate of USD 4.85,” according to a circular issued by the Ministry of Civil Aviation on June 7.
The fee is part of the air fare paid by passengers and has been revised for the first time since 2001.
