Rajnath Singh urges CISF to hire more women, ramp up cyber security

TOG News Service NEW DELHI, MAR 10, 2018: ADDRESSING the gathering on the occasion of the 49th Raising Day Parade of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) in Ghaziabad today, the Union Home Minister Mr Rajnath Singh, urged the Central Armed Police Forces to launch special drives to recruit more women in the forces. He stated that this would help achieve the goal of 33% reservation for women. Also turning to more topical issues, he advised the Force to reinforce its plan for cyber security.

Elaborating on this issue, Mr Rajnath Singh stated that data theft, hacking and cyber crimes had added a fourth dimension to industrial security. Thereby, considering the changing security scenario, he stated that the Cyber & Information Security (CIS) Division had been recently established under the aegis of the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA). The Minister also took the opportunity to give kudos to the force, stating that air travellers have lavished praise on the CISF personnel for their politeness while ensuring foolproof security at airports.

He also stated that as the Indian economy would surpass the $5 trillion mark in a few years, the need was felt to boost critical infrastructure including airports, metro and high-speed railways. Since security to such vital infrastructure and strategic installations including space research and nuclear power plants lay in the safe hands of the CISF, he said the force is thus contributing to India's development and nation-building. The Union Home Minister noted that the CISF had also been providing Consultancy Services in industrial security to the corporate sector. As the CISF enters its Golden Jubilee Year, he lauded the world's largest industrial security force for its multi-dimensional roles including Internal Security in combating Left Wing Extremism.

On the occasion, Mr Singh presented awards and medals to CISF personnel and took the salute of an impressive parade. He also released the CISF Coffee Table book.
