As Commonwealth member countries raise doubts about security for the 2010 Games, the Organising Committee is busy working on a foolproof ticketing system. Delhi government is determined to show that they are serious about security of participants and the audience.
In the latest move, the organizing committee informed that all tickets will carry a barcode. The barcode will have information including stand and seat. Also, the Delhi Police will have the photograph of each person watching the game and his exact seat in the stadium.
When the spectator enters the stadium, security cameras will record his photograph. The photo will be stored along with the information in the barcode.
“It is a foolproof system, by which we will know exactly where a person is sitting in the stadium and what time he left the venue,” said Sujit Panigrahi, Additional Director General, Technology, of the Organising Committee.
