Amit Shah calls for digitisation of deployment data, wants to ensure CAPF jawans get at least 100 days with family every year

The Union Home Minister has directed that the deployment details of the troops of these forces should be digitised so that better manpower rationalisation can be done.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah has directed the Director-Generals of all Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) and Assam Rifles to ensure that jawans get to stay with their families for at least 100 days in a year.

According to a report in Times of India, Union Home Minister Amit Shah has directed the CAPFs to undertake a mega manpower planning and ensure that around 7 lakh jawans get to spend at least 100 days with their families in a year.

Reportedly, Amit Shah was given a presentation last month about the functioning of the CAPFs. Following the presentation, the Union Home Minister directed that the deployment details of the troops of these forces should be digitised so that better manpower rationalisation can be done.

The Union home ministry has now asked all the chiefs or Directors General (DG) of forces like CRPF, BSF, CISF, ITBP, SSB and Assam Rifles to undertake the exercise and implement a plan where a jawan or a constable spend 100 days with his family.

If the new orders are implemented, the jawans will be posted to their nearest units, which will allow them to travel and stay with their families when there are no operational duties, a senior official said.

The senior official added that the force chiefs have been asked to assess and prepare reports of their additional manpower so that the over-all deployment of a CAPF unit is not affected.

The digitisation of data, as compared to the current system of keeping in paper file format, allows the force headquarters to easily rotate and deploy their troops. This system will also help in addressing the grievances of personnel regarding their transfer and posting to a place near to their family, the official said.

Reportedly, the forces have been given a deadline of two months to accomplish the task.

Speaking to the media, KK Sharma, former Border Security Force Chief had said last year that an average jawan of his force only gets to spend about 2.5 months or 75 days in a year with his family and if one has a service of about 30 years, then this figure comes to about five years in the entire job period.
