  • The  Border  Security  Force  has  completed  47 years of dedicated & glorious  service to the Nation on Ist Dec' 2012.

  • On 19th Dec' 2012, I took the charge as DG BSF. I feel privileged and proud, to have been given the honour of commanding this elite force of 173 Battalions, which  as its own Air and Water Wings, Artillery Regiments and can rightly  boast of its Training Institutes. The force which grew from 25 Battalions in the year 1965 is  presently the largest Border Guarding force of the world.

  • Since its inception, the BSF has played a key role in nation's security. The rich & valiant contribution of BSF during the Indo-Pak war of 1971, in fighting insurgency & militancy in Punjab, J & K and North- East and recently in the areas affected by Left Wing Extremism not only highlights the glorious past but encourages us to strive for greater heights in future.

  • The days ahead are full of challenges and we should be ready to thwart the nefarious threats from anti-national elements. I am sure, with our determined & dedicated efforts we will rise to the challenges and will continue to serve the Nation with utmost sincerity & dedication.

  • The key to success of a force with such vast responsibilities as the BSF is patriotism, integrity and commitment to give the best possible performance by each member of the force. I shall expect this commitment from all officers and men as the Nation expects and deserves the best from us.

  • Today,  let us resolve, to continue to serve the Nation with honour and glory and achieve the highest standard of professional efficiency and maintain the most cordial relations with border population.
