Aviation Security

CISF was assigned the challenging task of aviation security at Indian airports according to the decision taken by the Committee of Secretaries, GOI on Janurary 2000 in the backfrop of hijacking of Indian Airlines Flight IC- 814 on 24th Dec. 1999. The first induction was done on 03/02/2000 at Jaipur Airport. Now CISF has completed more than nine years of its induction and is protecting 57 Airports all over the country.

Last year CISF recovered property worth Rs.13.81 crore of which items valued at Rs.5.18 crore, were restored back to their rightful owners and rest were made over to the Airport Authority of India. To check the menace of touts at airports and its vicinity, CISF launched drives in which 421 touts were apprehended, during the year 2008.

Deployment in Private Sector

With the growing threat of terrorist outfits, the industries in the private sector and joint venture enterprises, which are immensely contributing to the growth of the Indian economy, approached the Government for a proactive cover of CISF over and above the capabilities of their own private security wings and agencies. Thus the CISF Act was amended to enable the deployment of CISF for security of private sector.

The first induction of CISF in Infosys, Bangalore on 31st July,2009 will always remain a watershed in the life of this organization. It marked the happy culmination of the proactive efforts of the Govt. to enable the deployment of an Armed force of the Union to protect vital establishments of the private sector . It added another feather to the cap of CISF.
