After the Indian government revoked Article 370, the Ministry of Civil Aviation has issued a strict security protocol which is to be followed by airport authorities in order to avoid any mishap. The ministry has perceived that all the airports in the country have emerged as "soft targets" for any aviation-related terror attack. 

The Bureau of Civil Aviation Society (BCAS), which is responsible for security at all airports has issued a detailed advisory while revising the security measures to be followed, especially in cities like Mumbai. 

The instructions for security measures suggest that all vehicles will be subject to random and intensive security check one kilometre away from any airport in the country.
