Paramilitary forces: Guardians of the country's security in peace time

MAR 01 (WTN) - After the martyrdom of CRPF jawans in the terrorist attack in Pulwama, there was a debate in the country that the soldiers of paramilitary forces should also be given the martyr status like the soldiers of the military. Not only this, retired jawans of paramilitary forces are demanding that they should get pension under old pension scheme. For your information, let you know that pension is currently given to the military officers and jawans under the Old Pension Scheme, whereas since 2004, paramilitary forces are not getting the benefits of old pension facility.

But have you ever wondered, what are the differences between military and paramilitary forces in our country? If you do not know, then we describe you what is the difference between these two? Military means the Army, Air Force and Navy. These three parts of the military come under the Defense Ministry and their supreme commander is the President.

The main task of the military is to protect the country from external threats. Apart from the time of war, the military is called for help in emergency situations during peace. During the floods in Kashmir and Kerala, the Indian military saved millions of people by introducing indomitable courage.

In addition to the military, there are paramilitary forces for the protection of India which come under the Home Ministry. In India, there are a large number of paramilitary forces jawans and officers. The soldiers of the paramilitary forces carry a front within the country or in the atmosphere of peace on the border. At present, the number of soldiers and officers of paramilitary forces in the country is about 10 lakhs. The names of these paramilitary forces are CRPF, BSF, ITBP, CISF, Assam Rifles, SSB and NSG. The top official of the paramilitary forces is DG, which is a senior IPS officer.

The work of all these paramilitary forces is divided in the country. Just like CRPF is deployed in the terror and maoist affected areas within the country. The CRPF is deployed during the election or again during the VVIP movement. BSF i.e. the Border Security Force is deployed in duty on the border of Pakistan and Bangladesh. The BSF is stationed on the border at the peace time. At the time of the war, Army forces take the front of the border instead of BSF.

ITBP means that the Indo-Tibetan Border Police is deployed on the India-Tibet border. At the same time Assam Rifles is imposed mainly on duty in the insurgency-hit areas of Assam. SSB is deployed on the Indo-Nepal border. At the same time, the most different CISF i.e. Central Industrial Security Force personnel are deployed to protect the public sector enterprises. At the same time, NSG i.e. the National Security Guard is in the forefront to face terrorist incidents and their main goal is to elimination of terrorists. NSG commandos are given special training to deal with terrorist attacks.
