The BCAS’s primary role was to coordinate, monitor, inspect, and train personnel in civil aviation security matters. BCAS reorganized into an independent department on 1st April 1987, under the Ministry of Civil Aviation, following the Kanishka Tragedy in June 1985. The aim of BCAS is to safeguard civil aviation operations against acts of unlawful interference. BCAS is responsible for laying down standards for security in respect of civil flights operating to/from India and ensuring their compliance through regular inspections and security audits.
