With great humility
and pride, I took charge as DG BSF on 29th
Feb 2016. It is a singular honor to be given
this opportunity to lead the world's largest
and one of the best Border Guarding Force.
2. The BSF
mandated for Border Guarding on Pakistan and
Bangladesh Borders is also entrusted with
responsibility of Internal Security to
counter Left Wing Extremism. Serving in all
these theatres in most challenging
conditions, BSF lives up to its reputation
of "First Line of Defence" with a spirit of
diligence, professionalism and highest
standard of discipline.

who have made the supreme sacrifice for the
Nation. We are indeed duty bound to look
after the welfare of family members of our
4. The charter of BSF
bestows great onus that needs to be
shouldered without any compromise on
standards of performance the Nation expects.
Our administrative work is also
multi-dimensional and challenging, requiring
utmost sincerity and great levels of
Integrity, transparency and probity.
5. Welfare of
BSF personnel will be the top priority in my
plan of action. Special impetus will be on
re-strengthening basic infrastructural needs
of BSF at Frontiers. I exhort all men in the
chain of command to initiate and maintain
healthy inter personal relations. Sincere
and persistent efforts in grievance
redressal will nurture the confidence of
ranks in their seniors, which is the key to
success in generating required synergies.
initiatives in modernizing and capacity
building of the force are already underway.
The future is bound to demand constant
changes in our organization, in our
administrative system, in our recruitment
process and in our training. We should gear
up to become a truly modern, responsible and
dependable Arm of the Union. It will be our
collective responsibility not only to usher
in progressive as well as futuristic
concepts but also to carry forward the
innovative changes in consonance with the
strides already taken.
7. I am sure in
the times to come, we will be meeting all
the challenges in the best possible manner
to serve the Nation following our
motto"JIWAN PRAYANT KARTAVYA".
