Move to allow airlines to carry out Ground-handling services opposed

Ground Handlers Association of India has said that allowing domestic airlines to carry out ground-handling services as suggested in the draft aviation policy could compromise security. In a statement, the association said that by allowing domestic airlines and charter operators to deploy their own ground-handling staff and equipment would lead to unnecessary increase in traffic and chaos at metro airports, thereby increasing security risks. Apart from the fact that the huge investments made by the ground handlers will lead to a loss if the draft policy is implemented, it will also violate the provisions of the Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act 1970, the statement said.
