Civil Aviation Secretary R N Choubey said noted that once the portal is in place, paper-based work for security clearances will be done away with.
The government today said a portal will be launched next month for security clearance- related work for various entities in the civil aviation sector.

Stating that the initiative is part of ease of doing business, Civil Aviation Secretary R N Choubey said an online portal would be functional from December 1.

Whether it is for airlines, airports, cargo handling or ground handling agencies or those who wish to run commercial business in terminal buildings, security clearances were becoming tedious, he said.

He noted that once the portal is in place, paper-based work for security clearances will be done away with.

“We have received a lot of cooperation from the Ministry of Home Affairs and security agencies in this regard. This portal will come into existence from December 1,” he told reporters here.

According to him, a decision on an application filed through the portal will be taken within 30 days.

The country’s civil aviation sector is one of the fastest growing in the world, registering double-digit growth in passenger numbers for more than two years.
