I have taken over as DG BSF on 8th April 2014 and feel privileged and honoured to command this extremely versatile and efficient Force.  The  BSF hold an important position in the National Security Apparatus.  It would be my priority to hold the faith of the Nation by executing all tasks assigned by the Govt to us in the most professional manner.

I pay homage to our gallant Officers and men who have made the supreme sacrifice for the nation and made us proud.  I assure all of you that BSF is committed for the welfare of the families of these gallant officers and men.

BSF has always displayed highest standards of professionalism, valour and loyalty to the Nation while defending our borders, countering internal unrest, assisting in natural disasters as well as any other duty assigned to it by the Govt. of India.

I exhort senior commanders to be just, transparent and firm while dealing with operational and administrative matters but at the same time, welfare of all the Force personnel and redressal of their genuine grievances shall not be overlooked on the pretext of operational or administrative exigencies. It is our collective responsibility to look after the welfare of all the Force personnel.  Their grievances should be redressed properly and on priority in a time bound manner.  Non redressal of grievances cause stress among the Force personnel.  I firmly believe that easy accessibility of Commanders and healthy interpersonal relations between Commanders and their under command will greatly help in reducing the stress factor among the troops.

In the past three months in the capacity of Spl DG and Offg DG, I had visited many locations of BSF and had interacted with officers and men.  It is a matter of pride  that despite facing various challenges, BSF has executed the assigned task in an exemplary manner and has earned its rightful place in national security arrangements.  I exhort all Force personnel to put their mind and heart for betterment of this elite Force so that our Flag flies higher than ever before.  I am confident that BSF will continue to perform its assigned tasks with highest standards of professional efficiency and dedication.

     Jai Hind
