CRPF ALL SET FOR IMAGE MAKEOVER
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Apr 17: The largest paramilitary force CRPF -- with about three lakh officers and personnel-- is all set for an image makeover with a "re-energised" human resource policy for all its units, including the elite anti-Naxal force CoBRA.
India’s primary armed paramilitary, when it comes to anti-naxal and internal security duties, has deployed about 60 battalions (60,000 personnel) for anti-Maoist campaigns while almost 70 battalions have been deployed in Jammu and Kashmir.
The force has asked competent organisations to undertake and prepare a complete study including Business Process Re-energising and an Information Technology (IT) Strategy for functioning of its various branches.
"CRPF is further set to expand and is estimated to reach a strength of above 3.25 lakh personnel within a couple of years. The management and administration of this massive establishment will be practically impossible with the present authorisation of officers and staff in the Directorate General (force headquarters)," the proposal floated by the force, which came into existence in 1939, said.
Other objectives of the proposed study, to be finished within three months, are to prepare a complete study of human resources strength requirement of special zones of the force at Jammu, Kolkata, Guwahati and Hyderabad including Business Process Re-energising of these offices and also human resources requirement and rationalisation of the Commando Battalion for Resolute Action (CoBRA), raised in the force two years back to deal exclusively with naxalites.
"In 1992, the strength of the force was around 1.60 lakh and the number of sub-ordinate offices/battalions under it was around 200. But during the last 15 years, the force witnessed unprecedented growth/expansion taking its' total strength to around 3 lakh personnel.
In order to meet this unprecedented increase in the workload, the Directorate General is forced to take "an undesirable recourse of attachment of personnel from field formations, adversely affecting their operational and administrative effectiveness," it said.
