The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), part of the Ministry of civil aviation, has approved InterGlobe Aviation Limited, parent of IndiGo Airlines, to self-handle outbound cargo at Visakhapatnam International Airport in Andhra Pradesh.
As a result, the cargo handling operation will start again on Saturday. It’s interesting to note that Vizag is the first airport in India to allow any airline, including Indigo, to handle security clearance for cargo on their own.
The BACS has written to the management of IndiGo stating that, by the inspection committee’s recommendations. IndiGo is authorized to operate cargo from Visakhapatnam International Airport. The BCAS director general has granted permission. The Andhra Pradesh Air Travellers Association thanked the BACS and Parliament members for their support.

A high-level committee of the Vizag Steel Plant is currently examining the credentials of the businesses that have expressed interest in the steel plant.

According to a senior official at the plant, during this scrutiny, the steel plant management would check to see if any phoney companies were competing. Further, it would determine which company’s proposal would benefit the plant the mandl as which company would supply raw materials or money.
According to sources, the facility will issue a tender call during the first week of May. With the completion of the tender process scheduled for June. The tender’s term would be only one year.
