A decision has been taken to increase the fine imposed on people who engage in various irregularities and unscrupulous acts at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA), in Katunayake, Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva said.

He said that it has been decided to increase the fine of Rs.25,000 to Rs.100,000.
