    The home ministry (MHA) has been given the nod by the government to create its own air wing for effective policing of the international borders and to end its dependence on the Indian Air Force.
    The elaborate plan involves the MHA procuring over two dozen new choppers and at least ten new medium fixed-wing aircraft for transporting paramilitary personnel across the country in case of any emergency.
    New bases will be set up across the country for this purpose. This will lead to swiftness in operations in insurgency-affected areas, including the North- East and Jammu & Kashmir.

    A home ministry official said the Central Armed Police Forces such as the BSF, CRPF, ITBP and SSB have made repeated demands for their own choppers and aircraft to transport their personnel, considering the requirements on the international borders.
    The NSG also wants dedicated aircraft and choppers to rush its commandoes in the event of a terror strike.

    IAF can only oppose IA plans to have their hellicopter wing. They have no balls to oppose this. Chiddu is on the way of empire creation and has misplaced priorities. He is pleasing IPS lobby to escape 2G and other scandals, I think.

    just like two beautiful girls cant be friends the air wing of both home ministry and iaf wont have good terms with eachother. we will see attacks taking place not because of paucity of resources and men but because of indecisive nature of guarding protocol that will make terrorists or enemy sneaking into our territory. in the end both wil be blaming eachother. sep air wings for paramil and army should be just like one for navy- truely for enhancing capability of main force. for army it should be for quick mobilization of assets and medievac. they should have small and heavy helis with some good uav and attack helis. paramil should have medievac and surveillance helis. they should look for getting dedicated areas to fly and districts should be distributed among forces for patrolling. this will ensure proper utilization of resources

    Depend upon situation..

    Certainly what ever they purchase wont be good as IAF..

    Dhruv is a good contender, But again if number are short the may face maintenance problem and ultimately low sorties and crashes.

    Some thing comparable to AN-32 may be best for medium transport..

    already we have IAF faculties for use of maintenance, and mainly BSF and CRPF are in war with Maoists, and atleast once in month will come under fire with small arms in jungles...

    but for An-32 may not be in production?
    atleast they may buy C-130J or second hand planes,because their budgets are too low compared to IAF...

    Depends on the decision, HAL Lancer on other hand can be used too..


    There are no C-130J second hand, there are plenty of other option:

    EADS CASA C-295 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    CASA/IPTN CN-235 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Transall C-160 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Aeritalia G.222 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Antonov An-26 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Good.

    Chidambaram will get the flexibility that he desires.

    And hopefully he will not want the Army and Air Force to salvage him out of a fix any more.

    Can be a Good Choice , Paramilitary should have their dedicated Air wing !! Most of this units already have Choppers and aircrafts in their air wing Such as BSF have Dhruv's,Mi-8 and Embraer 135

    Air wing for NSG is needed considering what happened During 26/11 !! for Chopper's Mil or Dhruv's can do the Job !! while for fixed wing ac many options are available like C-27 spartans or C-130's
