A team of 20 police personnel has been formed to curb touting at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA). The move comes after several cases of touting were reported from the visitors area of the airport. The Delhi Prevention of Touting and Malpractices Act was implemented in March 2011. This helped contain the incidents of touting. Before the Act was introduced,touts were booked under a DD (daily diary) entry and let off. Following the introduction of the Act,touting reduced considerably,with 275 cases being reported in 2008,226 in 2009,219 in 2010 and 30 in 2011. Police said 20 touting cases were recorded so far this year.
