The clips that are now doing rounds on social media prompted the Indian business fraternity to question the sanctity of one of the world's largest ‘international I.T. or commerce hub’.

Early in the morning, Grammy award winner Ricky Kej, who was stuck in the queue for over an hour, took to Twitter to express his frustration saying, ‘Pathetic state of immigration at the Bengaluru International Airport.’
Kej also expressed that even with over 1000 people waiting, all counters weren't put to use and the staff was completely clueless regarding how to handle the situation.
