    Yeah you have the full right to put your views ,, there is no question regarding that. Your concern is well appreciated. Be safe as our troops are well geared. Regarding border patrol ,, yeah it is dangerous,, but when you find a person is clicking photos their ,, it must not be as dangerous as you think. They are all with BPJs when they sense danger, and you know that they can sense danger more than us. It is just that they don't wear a helmet while riding a cycle doesn't mean that they don't wear a helmet while riding Suzuki Hyabusha.
    If I have annoyed you by any reason then I am sorry. But please do check google before you post. Specially when you are criticizing your own very Country.

    Chad yaar,,, no armed forces are born with great equipment with them,,, they are improved. That is what happening with our armed forces mate. If you compare our armed forces with 1st world countries then that is unfair.

    BSF in border areas to get water pipeline soon:-
    Vimal Bhatia, TNN | May 6, 2013, 05.12 AM IST
    JAISALMER: BSF jawans posted at Barmer and Jaisalmer border areas adjoining Pakistan have been facing shortage of water for quite a long time. Residents of border areas fare no better with the onset of summer. A BSF officer said a plan is underway to provide respite to jawans at the border posts. At present water is being supplied through tankers which are ferrying water from a distance of 100km away from the border posts, BSF DG Subhash Joshi said during his visit to Barmer.

    Joshi said water is a big problem in border areas, despite this crisis, efforts are being made to provide water to the jawans as per their demand. For storage, underground tanks are being built at many places and above that several facilities, including ultra modern arms, have been provided to jawans for safeguard of the border.

    In a modernization plan for the BSF, the Union home minsitry has approved proposals in which the jawans will get more facilities. He also said to provide the facilities to all jawans across the country, a composite border policy has been implemented.

    To provide relief to the jawans who face problems at the desert border with temperature touching over 50 degrees, the DRDO is making cool vests. While addressing officers and jawans deployed at the border adjoining Barmer in a soldier meet, Joshi said personnel in desert areas, where the temperature crosses 50 degree mark, should do their duty diligently. Considering their myriad problems, the BSF headquarters had asked the DRDO to make cool vest jackets, which keep the temperature lower by 15 degree Delsius, he said. "Celebrating 2013 as the year of jawans, I assure you that during my tenure, it would be ensured that jawans get facilities for restaurants, barracks and toilets at every border post," Joshi told the jawans.

    He said after discussing with senior officers of headquarters, he would prepare other welfare programmes for the jawans.

    In the last three years, there has been no incident of intrusion and smuggling from across the border in Barmer sector and alert BSF personnel have successfully foiled any instrusion attempt by apprehending the intruders.

    Later he interacted with the jawans and asked about their problems and gave necessary directions to the officers concerned to resolve them.

    After the meet, the DG visited Munabao and other posts at the international border adjoining Pakistan. He reviewed the security arrangement and inspected the night vision equipment used for guarding the border during night. Joshi said he would later visit the Munabao railway station and inspect the security arrangements there.

    Sarabjit' killing leaves jailed BSF sepoy's family in despair:-
    Wednesday, May 08, 2013, 00:08
    Faridkot: Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh's killing in a Lahore jail has left the family of another prisoner of war in Pakistan, a worried lot.

    Surjit Singh, a BSF sepoy who is a prisoner of war for the past 42 years in Pakistan, remains untraceable and his wife Angrez Kaur and son Amrik Singh continue to live between hope and despair.

    About a year back, Amrik sought Pakistan Human Rights activist Ansar Burney's help in tracing his father in Pakistan and says, Burney had assured him of all help.
    "But now, with the death of Sarbjit Singh and Sarbjit's sister Dalbir Kaur accusing Burney of betraying her and demanding huge money to secure Sarabjit's release, we have lost all hope," Amrik said.

    He now wants the Centre to take all possible steps to get Indian prisoners in Pakistani jails released.

    Amrik was only one year old when his father was captured with 54 other missing persons in the 1971 war, Angrez Kaur recounts and says, she has now decided to approach the members of India-Pak judicial commission to know about the condition of her husband.

    BSF foils intrusion bid along International Border:-
    Tuesday, May 07, 2013
    Jammu: BSF on Tuesday foiled an intrusion bid along the Indo-Pak border in Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir.

    "Around 5 am, BSF personnel observed one person trying to cross over into Indian territory, taking cover of sarkanda (thick bushes) in Ballard forward area (in Samba district)," DIG BSF JS Oberoi said.

    "Troops were alerted about the intruder crossing the IB. He was intercepted and troops fired in that direction. The firing continued for 15 minutes", the DIG said, adding that because of thick bushes, the intruder could not crossover to this side.
    "A search is going on in the area by BSF troops and Pakistani ranger as well", he said, adding further details are awaited.

    Asked whether the intruder has been killed in the firing, he said a "search is going on. Due to thick bushes, it is difficult to say. Let us wait for the details".

    BSF shares about 198 km of international border with Pakistan in Jammu frontier area.

    IMPORTANCE OF TRAINING IN BSF
    [​IMG]
    greenshot download

    Border Security Force, one of the largest Para-Military forces in the World, is a versatile force, which is responsible for guarding round the clock vast and volatile borders not only against trans-border criminals but also against heavily armed trans-border terrorism as well. Though guarding the borders is the prime commitment, security forces remain heavily and decisively involved in the interior as well in combating insurgency and militancy in various parts of the country. Because of its friendly and human face, BSF remains the much sough after Force for combating and containing serious law and order situations in the trouble prone States. And in case of hot War, BSF works as a force multiplier and contributes substantially towards over all War efforts of the nation as a credible front line Force.
    By virtue of this unique dual role, the Border-men more commonly known as "PRAHARI" is required to be a perfect Policeman during peace and a professional soldier during War. Management of borders (International Border), restoration of law and order situation in the interior and fighting a Conventional/unconventional War are the three challenging assignments which a border-man is required to carryout. In short, these fundamental essentials make the "Training Trilogy" of BSF. Professional proficiency of any Force is directly related to the standard of Training of that Force and it is Primarily due to this commitment that BSF refuses to compromise on its training assignments irrespective of handicaps and heavy orders. BSF believes in sweating during peace to ensure that it does not bleed during War or War like situation.
    MAJOR TRAINING INSTITUTIONS

    For organizing and carrying out "Basic Fundamental" training and "In Service Professional Training", we have three (03) main training Institutions, (05) Special Training Schools and (11) STCs/BTCs spread across the Country. Three main training Institutions are :-

    Shinde asks BSF officers to be considerate to jawans’ problems
    Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Friday gave gallantry awards to Border Security Force (BSF) personnel at the paramilitary force’s 11th Investiture Ceremony where he asked officers to be “little more considerate” about grievances and requirements of the personnel deployed on the border and for other internal security-related duties in the country.

    Pointing out that the BSF was observing 2013 as the “year of the jawan”, Mr. Shinde said the government would improve the living conditions of personnel deployed at the borders. Apart from making efforts to improve working and living conditions of jawans deployed on field duties, the government was giving facilities to retired personnel of Central police forces under the ‘ex-CAPFs personnel’ category, he added. The ‘ex-CAPFs personnel’ category is on the lines of the ‘ex-servicemen’ categorisation for personnel of the three armed forces of the country which entails benefits in government-run enterprises and schemes.

    Speaking on the occasion, BSF Director-General Subhash Joshi said the force has successfully faced several challenges and crises over these years. “The BSF is ready to face the challenges and preparing itself in terms of doctrine, infrastructure, weaponry and training. We are carrying out relentless vigil across the borders...we are committed to bring peace in the Maoist’s infested areas,” he added.

    On the occasion, Mr. Shinde awarded some families of the 1971 BSF war veterans, besides decorating 15 BSF officers and personnel with police medals for gallantry. He also gave away 34 police medals for meritorious service.

    The investiture ceremony was followed by Rustamji Memorial Lecture 2013, which was delivered by former D-G BSF Prakash Singh where he deliberated on internal security challenges.

    No cooperation from Pak Rangers in controlling smuggling: BSF
    Saturday, May 18, 2013, 19:22
    Hoshiarpur: Pakistan Rangers are not cooperating with BSF troopers in checking narcotic smuggling and infiltration, a senior officer of the force said on Saturday.

    Due to no cooperation from Pakistan's border guarding force, we are unable to stop smuggling of narcotics and infiltration completely, said Rajdeep Singh, Special Director General of the Border Security Force (West).

    There has been a spurt in drugs smuggling from across the border in recent times with BSF making a lot of seizures of heroin.
    "Pakistan Rangers do not own up their nationals and were not taking back their dead bodies who were killed during various encounters at the borders," the officer said.

    Replying to a question, Singh said that Pakistani forces had opened fire on Abduria check post in Jammu and Kashmir last evening.

    The firing stopped after BSF jawans retaliated.

    Singh said that 948 women recruits were protecting Indian borders effectively and efficiently.
