Mahendra Guru


The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) Raising Day is celebrated every year on March 10. This year marks the 49th Raising Day of the Force.

History

On this day, in 1969, the CISF was set up under an act of the Parliament of India with a strength of 2,800. It is directly under the Union Ministry of Home Affairs and its headquarters are at New Delhi.


CISF was subsequently made an armed force of the Republic of India by another Act of Parliament passed on 15 June 1983. Its current active strength is 1,41,735 personnel.

What CISF do?

The CISF provides security cover to 300 industrial units, government infrastructure projects and facilities and establishments located all over India. Industrial sectors like atomic power plants, space installations, mints, oil fields and refineries, major ports, heavy engineering, steel plants, barrages, fertilizer units, airports and hydroelectric/thermal power plants owned and controlled by Central Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs), and currency note presses producing Indian currency are protected by CISF. It thereby covers installations all over India straddling a variety of terrain and climatic conditions.

CISF is just a unique organisation in paramilitary forces for India, which works for sea ways, airways and some of the major installations in India. In CISF there are some reserved battalions which work with the state police to protect law and orders. CISF plays a major role in Disaster Management, for Disaster Management course the personnel are trained from NISA, Hyderabad. Another unique thing which the CISF has is a Fire Wing which helps during fire accidents in Industries where CISF is on guard.

Quick fact: The highest rank of CISF is Director General.


                                 We salute the CISF's bravery on its Raising Day.
