India Scraps Hand Baggage Tag

The world did it a few years back but Indian airports, manned by central security forces, are still definitely paper happy.

They cannot digest people walking past the security gates with smartphone based tickets and passengers walking through customs without a label tied to their handbags with an elastic thread is unacceptable to them.

However the paperless concept is catching on very slowly. Still, a few airline officials prefer to have the written ticket with a carbonless paper.

Whereas airlines are trying to cut corners everywhere including dispensing with the customary chocolates and ear plugs, saving millions annually, the move to scrap the hand baggage tag is a welcome one.

The key note here is the continued use of mobile devices to store financial and personal data, the data on your mobile device is now probably more dangerous to you if lost than the data held on any other device you own.

Keep your mobile safe and ensure your old ones are recycled by experts, not just thrown in the trash or passed on!
