Govt carries out cadre review for lower rungs of CRPF; 2.37 lakh personnel to benefit

NEW DELHI: A first-ever cadre review by the government will “benefit” 2.37 lakh jawans and sub-officers of the country’s largest paramilitary force CRPF, an order issued on Tuesday said.

The Union Home Ministry has okayed the review and sanction of fresh posts to the CRPF, the lead internal security force of the country, with its thrust being anti-Naxal operations and counter-terrorist offensives in the Kashmir Valley.

“The maiden cadre review for general duty personnel of the force will bring cheers to about 2.37-lakh personnel of Group B and C, from constable to inspector ranks, who were facing stagnation,” the Central Reserve Police Force said in a statement. (AGENCIES)
