‘Multi-dimensional’ CISF to recruit 35,000 jawans: Rajnath

RANCHI: As many as 35,000 more personnel will be recruited to the CISF which is a “multi-dimensional” force, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said today.

“A total 35,000 more personnel will be added in the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), which would take the strength to 1.8 lakh,” he said here.

Inaugurating the Eastern Sector Headquarters of CISF and Residential Complex here, he said the “CISF has a multi- dimensional role.”

Earlier, CISF used to guard industrial units, but now its responsibility has grown– working in naxal-hit areas, being deployed at ports, airports, power installations, nuclear centres — and they are discharging their duty commendably, Singh said.

Stating that CISF was “special” among the para-military forces, he said whenever personnel are needed for UN peace keeping forces, the attention goes to CISF. (AGENCIES)
