The prohibitions of carry-on "Matches and Lighters" from India

Matches and Lighters in carry-on baggage to international and domestic aircraft departing from India are under the ban strictly.
These items are prohibited when carried as checked baggage, too.
Please note that Matches and Lighters must be confiscated at security checkpoint.

It would be taken a longer time required for security checkpoint inspections than usual, so please come to the airport before enough time to the departure.
All airport terminals in India have been banned smoking in all their facilities including the lounge and the restaurant.
Your understanding and cooperation on this matter is highly appreciated.
