The government is looking at filling the post of the commissioner of civil aviation security in the next couple of months — the position that has been vacant for the past three years.
The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security is one the three aviation regulators — the other two being the DGCA that looks into aviation safety and the Airport Economic Regulatory Authority. “We are in the thick of things and we hope to complete the process in the next one to two months,” said officials at the ministry of civil aviation.
“Until now, the requirement of the commissioner of aviation security was that of the ranks of director-general of police, and the panel is looking at the eligible candidates.”
The ministry of civil aviation has requested the home ministry to provide a panel of eligible offices for the post.
