Is there a fast track at Delhi airport?

Apologies if this question has been asked previously but I did a google search and I was unsuccessful. My boss will travel to New Delhi in January 2017, most likely on Air Canada and I was wondering, if the Delhi International Airport has a fast track for business class passengers? From my quick research, I would like to say that it doesn't exist, but if my ASSumption is inaccurate, my credibility will be in jeopardy at work. Thanks in advance for your help.

Yes, there are dedicated J/F immigration counters and dedicated security lines after you clear immigration. There are signs for them.

As this is more a destination than airline question it's been relocated to the India forum for further discussion.

Yes - But they are not always faster - especially if it is quiet. A visual check from atop the escalator will tel you.

On my last trip to DEL there were no landing forms at the priority J immigration counters or the next regular ones, there are counters and cubbyholes to hold forms in front of the immigration desks. six or 8 of these counters were out of forms. This meant that all passengers walked down past about six or eight open fully staffed immigration desks finally found forms and then lined up at another four desks. Meanwhile all of the other immigration officers watched. I mentioned it (by then a line had formed at J desk) and got a head wobble....

business class passengers have a separate line which is usually much quicker....

there is a thread on a similar topic that already exists here:

Keyser: I had sent an online enquiry form to another Meet and Greet company earlier this week, but no response. Thanks to your thread, this company informs you immediately of their various services and price.

Folkart:Just curious to learn if business class passengers receive "Fast Track" cards from the airline?

Thanks to you both for assisting me.

@qctraveller68,

Would you be kind enough to post experience after it is utilized?
BTW, which one of the two mentioned, you ended up using?
(huge difference in price between the two)

On a related topic, is there a fast track going the other way, i.e. express check-in plus fast track security/immigration for J passengers?

yes there is....each airline has a separate check-in counter for elite & premium passengers....

at immigration there are a couple of counters just for business & first passengers....they are located somewhere in the middle of the immigration hall & are clearly marked....

once you pass that head over to the first security check point on the left....a security personnel will check your boarding pass & let you access the business/first line for security....

it used to be the case. But I believe this has changed.
