    Raising of India Reserve Battalions in States

    A scheme for raising of India Reserve Battalions (IRBs) in States was introduced in 1971 with a view to strengthening the capabilities of the States, and reducing their dependence upon CAPFs to deal with various types of law & order and internal security situations.

    153 IR Bns have been sanctioned and 144 have been raised by the States. 1 unraised IRB sanctioned to Jharkhand State has been converted into Specialised India Reserve Battalion (SIRB).

    The present funding pattern for IRB (Battalion Sanctioned vide order dated 24.12.2014) are:
    i) The standard cost of raising of one IR Bn is `34.92 crore, with 75% of the amount (`26.19 Crore) to be reimbursed to the States as Grant-in-aid by the Government of India and 25% of the amount to be borne by the States as their share.

    ii) In addition, Government of India will reimburse 50% of the infrastructure cost of IR Bns, subject to a ceiling of `25.00 crore, based on actuals. Land for the Battalions is to be provided by the State Government free of cost.

    iii) Thus, total amount of `51.19 crore is to be reimbursed by the Government of India for one IR Bn.

    In BE 2015-16, `40.00 crore has been allocated under Grants-in-Aid and `5.00 crore under Loan and Advance for reimbursement of raising cost of IR Bns. As on 31.12.2015, an amount of `14.4189 crore has been utilized in the fnancial year to reimburse the claims of Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, Kerala and Bihar.

    scheme of Specialized India Reserve Battalion (SIRB) with engineering component was approved by the Government in 2011 with the aim that the SIRB Battalion will execute small development works like village road, schools, primary health center, rural water supply etc in LWE States. 10 such SIRBs were sanctioned and 1 existing IRB in Jharkhand State was converted into SIRB.

    CISF to get 37,000 more troops to boost airport, metro security
    PTI
    Dec 22, 2016 22:27 IST

    New Delhi: Augmenting the manpower of CISF guarding critical infrastructure like airports and
    assets in the nuclear domain, the government has sanctioned raising the strength of the force with 37,000 more troops in order to bolster security at these facilities.
    The force has been seeking enhancement of its manpower, from the existing 1.45 lakh, for quite some time now as it is being increasingly entrusted with security duties like with the expansion of the Delhi Metro network in the national capital and transfer of more civil airports and private sector units under its cover.
    The Union home ministry recently approved raising the strength of the force to 1.80 lakh, by having 35,000 more
    personnel, with sanctions to raise two more battalions (about 2,000 personnel) once the new strength is achieved fully in about two years time.
    "This has come as a shot in the arm for us. Our tasks are increasing gradually and the enhancement in our strength will act as a great boon to ensure better operational preparedness, faster promotions and effective supervisory control," CISF Director General OP Singh told PTI while confirming the development.
    He added the force will soon begin recruitments to fill up these sanctioned numbers.
    "We are also going for a full cadre review of the force. The new strength will also help in undertaking a better
    organisation of posts and services," the DG said.
    Central Industrial Security Force officials said that with the government making clear its intention of entrusting more and more civil airports to it and an increasing task in the domain of VVIP security, the force required more numbers.
    While the CISF guards 59 civil airports in the country as of now, it also has an elite VVIP security wing under its command called the Special Security Group (SSG).
    At least 3,000 personnel, they said, are only required to cater to the security needs of the transport lifeline of the national capital, the Delhi Metro, which is not only expanding its network but is also witnessing an increasing passenger load from the current about 27 lakh commuters per day.
    Some manpower is also required to beef up security at sensitive aerospace and nuclear installations in the country and the new manpower when raised, will also be sent to these locations.
    After it was tasked to secure vital infrastructure in the private domain post the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, the
    forces' role in this domain is also increasing with eight facilities already under it command and manpower for the ninth is set to be deployed soon.
    Early this year, the government had ordered deployment of about 35 CISF personnel to guard Baba Ramdev's Patanjali Food and Herbal Park Private Limited in Haridwar.
    The other seven private sector units being guarded by CISF are: Electronics City in Bengaluru and Infosys campuses in Bengaluru, Mysore and Pune, Reliance Refinery and Petrochemicals in Jamnagar, Coastal Gujarat Power Ltd project executed by the Tata group in Mundra and the Tata Steel project based in Odisha's Kalinganagar.

    Govt sanctions 9,000 assault rifles, bullet proof vehicles to SSB

    BY: PTI | NEW DELHI |
    Updated: December 25, 2016 5:22 Pm
    Giving a major boost to the operational capabilities of border guarding force SSB–tasked to secure the country’s frontiers with Nepal and Bhutan — the government has sanctioned over 9,000 assault rifles, 34 armoured vehicles and more than 760 patrolling bikes to it. Officials said the Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) had sometime back written to the Union Home Ministry for not only upgrading its arms, ammunition and vehicles, but also wanted an upgrade in this regard.

    “Among the sanctions received include procurement of 12 bullet proof vehicles, 15 light armoured troop carriers, seven mine protected vehicles, 42 four-wheel patrolling vehicles, 763 bikes for troops’ patrol in Left Wing Extremism affected areas and 9,917 new assault rifles,” they said, adding, procurements will be made soon.
    The SSB, apart from being deployed to secure the 1,751-km long Indo-Nepal and 699-km long Indo-Bhutan borders, is also deployed to undertake anti-Naxal operations in Bihar and Jharkhand apart from rendering a variety of duties in the internal security domain. Officials said the new vehicles and weapons, once procured, will be sent across to various border guarding formations and those deployed in the LWE hit areas and Jammu and Kashmir.
    The SSB has also sought raising a full-fledged combat intelligence wing comprising around 1,000 personnel in order to better secure the “sensitive” and porous borders of Nepal and Bhutan. The force has 67 battalions on ground at present (about 67,000 personnel) and in the next two years it will raise more such contingents to rise its number upto 73 battalions.

    BSF receive TATA XENON to replace Mary to Gypsy as Patrol Vehicle.

    JAISALMER: In order to upgrade and make the border security more effective, BSF has got new vehicles. The old Maruti Gypsy is being replaced by Tata Xenon in a phased manner and the first replacement started from Rajasthan. The new vehicles have already reached in many border areas of the state including various sectors of BSF. Fifty Tata Xenons have been given to the Rajasthan frontier and each battalion is being provided with four vehicles.

    According to senior official sources in BSF, petrol vehicles will be replaced with diesel vehicles to cut down expenses and strengthen border security. Although, Gypsy is more robust to ride in desert areas and rough terrains but, it was proving costly as it runs on petrol. Looking to this, BSF was in search of an alternative to Gypsy and Tata Xenon was found to be sturdy and effective in guarding border.

    Sources said that two sand scooters were purchased on experimental basis and trial was conducted in Shahgarh Bulj area of Jaisalmer, but experts found some defects which are now being repaired. Also, order of some sand scooters has been placed. Confirming this, BSF Rajasthan frontier DIG Ravi Gandhi said that Maruti Gypsy are being replaced with Tata Xenons. The new vehicles are 4x4 with airbags and can easily roam on sand and remote areas.
    Gandhi further said that Tata Xenon is air-conditioned which will give relief to jawans even at 50 degrees Celsius and the best part is that it has trolley at its back, in which a lot of arms and explosives can be carried along with food and water.

    I wonder if BSF would like to standardize on Tata Xenon-series vehicles to replace all preceding models. Army too can have a vast range of uses for it. Besides the Xenon, the Safari Storme has been recently selected as the General Staff Vehicle (GSV) of IA, replacing the ancient Gypsy in that role at least partially.

    Thankfully we seem to have moved towards standardisation of equipment across board. The plethora of equipment continues to be a nightmare for any kind of management and effectiveness in undertaking joint operations especially in light of increased probability of India heading towards a wider assymmetric war
