Paramilitary Forces of India (In 2 Volumes)

Giriraj Shah (Author)
Synopsis Forces, having a degree of military capability though not a branch of regular army are classified as paramilitary forces. Members of a paramilitary force receive basic military training and equipped with sophisticated firearms comparable to a regular army unit and are often integrated with country's armed forces. Paramilitary forces in India are under the direct control of Ministry of Home Affairs of Govt. of India. Currently, the Assam Rifles, Railway Protection Force, Central Reserve Police Force, SSB, CISF, BSF, ITBP, RAF, NSG and SPG are operating as paramilitary forces in India. Their performance and role in the security (both external and internal) of the country have been remarkably superb and distinguished. This work in two volumes gives a categorical account of these forces -- history, organization, recruitment and training, role performance and achievements etc. Certainly the information culled from authoritative sources will prove of utmost use to one and all concerned.
