Major Indian cities to get IAF aerial protection.

In order to avoid another major threats like 26/11, in the country, the Indian Air Force is planning deploying detachments of fighter aircraft close to major cities so that they can deal with such threats in very less time.

According to officials, a small detachment of three to four dedicated aircraft would be deployed close to major cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Pune to provide cover against any threats from hijacked aircraft, low speed and high speed aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), micro-light aircraft, paragliders, balloons and remote-controlled aero- models.

"At present also, the IAF provides aerial protection to these cities but under the new plan, it will have dedicated aircraft round-the-clock for carrying out these responsibilities," senior Defence Ministry officials told PTI here.
