Commonwealth Games delegates to start arriving today

As the first batch of delegates for the Commonwealth Games are expected to arrive in the Capital on Wednesday, the Multi Agency Coordination Centre (MACC) has started functioning at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA).

According to airport sources, MACC will have representatives from Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), Delhi Police, Organising Committee, Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) and various ministries. The members of MACC will have the list of delegates and athletes and their schedule.

“We have already got the list of delegates arriving at the T3 and the list will be updated on a daily basis. Those who are arriving will be escorted by the CISF and Delhi Police. They will be then handed over to the security agency who will take them to their respective destinations,” an airport source said.

He added, “We have expected the movement of over 15,000 delegates and athletes but the numbers have come down to about 14,000. Currently, we have the list of 4,000 delegates from different countries but the list will be updated on daily basis.”
The embassy official concerned will also be a part of the MACC and a protocol will be followed to escort the delegates and athletes.

A flood of Games participants from over 70 countries will come. But additional tourist traffic from less than half of those countries is expected. “They will be put in exempted category and most of them are coming from chartered flights,” the source said.
