On having assumed the charge of Inspector General Punjab Frontier on 2nd Jan 2017 I convey my best wishes and compliments to all Officers, SOs and men of BSF and their families.
Punjab Frontier has been the cradle of Border Security Force, the premier border guarding force of India. It was on 1st December 1965 that
this elite Force came into existence by merging some Armed Police Bns under the able leadership of Officers from the Police and the Army. While Calcutta was made the HQ of Eastern Frontier, covering the border with Bangladesh, the then East
Pakistan, Jalandhar became the HQ of Western Frontier, which looked after the entire Western Border, with Pakistan.
MUKUL GOEL, IPS
Punjab Frontier has been a pioneer in border management techniques. Creating a sense of security in the border population has always been our key objective. We have evolved from a purely border guarding force into an organization which views the welfare of the
border population as an integral part of our primary role. We firmly believe that our objective can be achieved only with
active co-operation of people living on the borders of India.
This web site is aimed at bringing transparency to the functioning of the Frontier. Current information about the Frontier,
particularly relating to areas of activity having a direct or indirect bearing on the general public, has been posted on
the web site.
Punjab Frontier is committed to ensuring security and checking to foil cross border smuggling attempts & infiltration attempts, while maintaining a people friendly
approach in Border Management.
