From the desk of the Inspector General
On having assumed the charge of Inspector General North Bengal Frontier on 1st July' 2018. I convey my best wishes to all Seema Praharis of North Bengal Frontier.
I consider it a privilege to have been entrusted the command of this very important Frontier. The area is not only important from the point of view of border management but also crucial to security of nation. Management of this 932.39 kms of International Boundary with Bangladesh is going to pose several challenges, especially, in view of the recent confidence building measures and dialogue initiated between the two governments and also the heads of two counterpart border guarding forces. We have to find ways of synergizing the border guarding efforts of both BSF and BGB to achieve the aim of ensuring secure and peaceful environment for the most important stake holders i.e. the border population.
The recent initiatives towards ensuring mutual cooperation require a paradigm shift in the psychology of praharis deployed in day to day operational activities.
The website of North Bengal Frontier is aimed at giving out maximum information about the Frontier and we are continuously striving to upgrade the same. We welcome the suggestions to enhance the quality of information available and also appearance of the website.
With best wishes.
