Govt Prepares Plan To Withdraw Border Guarding Forces From Internal Security Duty
NEW DELHI: The government is working on an ambitious plan to gradually withdraw border guarding forces like the BSF, the ITBP and the SSB from internal security duties in order to strengthen protection at various frontiers of the country, official sources said on Thursday.

They said the proposal was first discussed during a meeting of these forces chaired by Union Home Minister Amit Shah last year.

According to the proposal, accessed by a news agency, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) is working on a new model where the burden of internal security duties, including conduct of elections, will be largely borne by the country's largest paramilitary force, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).
