On having assumed the charge of Inspector General Punjab Frontier on 15th Dec 2014 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.

           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 peoples living on border 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 ensure security and check to fail cross border smuggling attempts & infiltration attempts also, Punjab Frontier is committed to have a people friendly approach in Border Management.
