The Border Security Force is celebrating its 56th Raising day today. BSF is India's first line of defence. It was raised in accordance with an Act of the Parliament on 1st December, 1965, soon after the India-Pakistan War of 1965.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi extended his best wishes to all BSF personnel and their families on their Raising Day. In a tweet, Mr Modi said, BSF has distinguished itself as a valorous force, unwavering in their commitment to protect the nation and assist citizens during natural calamities. He said, India is proud of BSF.

Addressing the Raising Day event at a BSF camp in New Delhi today, DG, BSF Rakesh Asthana assured the country that Border Security Force will always stand to protect the country from the coward infiltration attempts of Pakistan. He paid his respects to families of all BSF personnel who lost their lives in the line of duty. Mr Asthana said the BSF was constituted with 25 battalions, and is 192 battalion strong today. The BSF is the sentry to the more than 6,000 kilometre long international border of the country.
