    People living near BSF's J&K camp say officers sell rations to civilians at half the market rate

    SRINAGAR: Civilians living near paramilitary forces' camps, particularly those of the Border Security Force (BSF), say officers sell fuel and food provisions meant for the personnel to outsiders at half the market rate.

    The "disclosure" made by BSF jawan said on the condition of anonymity.

    A civil contractor added, "We get petrol from BSF officers in charge of provisions at Humhama camp at half the market rate... Other items, like rice and spices, are also available much cheaper."

    A furniture dealer who requested anonymity said the "purchasing officers, while placing orders for elegant furniture for their offices, take a commission that is more than what we earn". The dealer added, "There is no e-tendering in the BSF. The officer will purchase furniture and take a commission and even compromise on the quality of the items." The story is the same when it comes to some CRPF officers. CRPF IG Ravideep Singh Sahi, who was posted to Srinagar as IG administration a month ago, said he would look into pilfering from stores for profit, if any took place at all. "The jawan is of paramount importance for the force and there should no compromise on the quality of his life when he is on duty," IG Ravideep Sahi said, adding that the CRPF had a proper mechanism for all purchases and that one could not go beyond those rules. A CRPF jawan on law and order duty in Srinagar, however, rejected the notion that the officers treated them badly. "We get quality food on time, and after duty hours we are provided proper accommodation at the concerned police stations."

    The BSF has ordered an inquiry into Yadav's allegations, with the report due Wednesday.

    So the earlier video of BSF Jawan showing how bad they are being treated and how less food they are given might be true. And this ration might be sold off by higher authorities to make some quick bucks. Govt. should make an inquiry and fire all the culprits strip off their ranks and should be put in jail for life. How would a BSF jawan with empty stomach guard our borders. Turn on the heat on officers involved.

    Be careful with what is getting reported.. the Jawan who made the video was handled with internal action taken back in 2010 timeline with events of pointing gun to seniors as well..

    Lots of false reportings will come out just for sake of it with anonymous quotes..

    This is really sad and pathetic. The report and whatever the officer posted might be true or false but it is certainly affecting the reputation of the establishment especially the morals of those jawans who are standing at the border posts in this evil winter weather defending our nation from those jihadis.

    The issue has merits at times. There is no denying it. It may or may not be true in the present case, but generally it has been seen that the officer cadre in BSF will be based away from frontline posts except for junior officer cadre and at times there may be no officer in winter cut off positions in LC and, the most basic of facilities may not be adequately provided to them.

    As most of the BSF posts are under operational control of Army in LC environment, the negative impact from such cases is managed by the presence of Army officer in the area, however, the same can not replace the absence of BSF officer if the case may be so.

    At the same time, a lot of the officers of the BSF too, especially the junior officers, are epitome of officer cadre. Hence, to paint in a broad brush is incorrect. The case needs to be investigated as a specific case only.

    there is no denying that corruption is rampant in IA . . . . i remember ASC guys selling petrol or diesel at lower price to the civilians . . . or getting subsidized stuff/daaaru from the canteen and selling it at a higher price outside . . .but this particular case seems a bit twisted . . . keeping in mind the previous records of this 40 years old "jawan".
