Border Security Force is India’s first line of defence, guarding of Indo-Pak and Indo- Bangladesh Borders under dynamic operational situations and the given multi geo terrains.

More than 2000 brave hands have laid down their lives in the line of duty. The supreme sacrifice made by these gallant Praharis of the country should be remembered by the Nation for all times to come. The contribution of the BSF in eliminating Militancy from Punjab and Kashmir has been another feather in its cap. The elimination of dangerous foreign trained Mercenaries like Amanullah Shah Peer, Saiful Islam Qamar Ul Zaman, Ghazi Baba and Abu Umar are significant points to BSF’s achievements.
