You may not have to put iPads, tablets on a separate tray during airport security check soon

The govt is also trying to fast track the provision of electronic boarding pass

The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security on Thursday had given a recommendation which might be a relief to air passengers. The regulatory body had said that there is no need to take out tablets or iPads from hand baggage to be put separately in trays for X-ray at airport security check as it is done according to present norms. The advisory said that BCS has decided to stop `standalone' X-ray of personal electronic devices that do not have detachable batteries and has asked the CISF to take a decision on the same promptly. According to a TOI report, India is among the few countries that require flyers to take out tablets from hand bag and have them X-rayed separately.

In addition to this move, the government is also trying to fast track the provision of electronic boarding pass in major airports across the country.
