           It gives me immense satisfaction to inform all officers and personnel  that I have assumed charge as the Director General of the Sashastra Seema Bal, today on   30th September, 2018.   I consider myself quite fortunate in leading such a prestigious force and look forward to a very satisfying tenure.

SSB, primarily being a border guarding force and the lead intelligence agency on the Indo-Nepal and Indo-Bhutan borders, is also playing an extremely crucial role in curbing the left wing extremism in different areas  of Chhattisgarh, Bihar and Jharkhand in addition to performing internal security duties in Jammu and Kashmir and BTAD areas of Assam.

I have been watching the meteoric rise of the force in terms of manpower, professionalism and output with great satisfaction.   It is my fond hope that all the officers and personnel will continue the good work and prove worthy of the trust and confidence bestowed on us by the Government of India and the people of the country. There are new emerging challenges to national security.  It is in this perspective that the SSB has been mandated to guard these porous borders and also crack down on infiltration, smuggling and Anti-National activities.  I am confident that you would continue to function with the same sense of enthusiasm in the pursuit of excellence and professionalism to achieve higher standards and keep the SSB flag flying high.

The reputation of the force is made or marred by the conduct and integrity displayed by the force in its interactions with the public. We have a sacred responsibility towards the nation and must fulfil it both in letter and spirit. You are expected to exhibit zero tolerance towards corruption while actively promoting community participation and coordination with other stakeholders in our areas of responsibility. I wish great success to all officers and men in this onerous task. i am sure that all of us will work together towards improving our operational efficiency, while also being sensitive to the welfare of our personnel and uphold our motto of ‘Service, Security and Brotherhood’.

     I convey my best wishes to you and all members of your family.
