National| On 3rd March, retired paramilitary forces and their affiliated organizations are going to Delhi's Jantar Mantar from different parts of the country. In fact, they demand that they be given pension under old pension scheme. Presently pension is given to the army under Old Pension Scheme, whereas this facility was stripped from paramilitary forces in 2004. But the question is why the paramilitary forces are different from the army and what is the difference between them. Today we will explain this report in detail.

Whenever there is talk of army in India, only Army, Navy and Air Force come. These three are under the Ministry of Defense and the President of India is their supreme commander. Their main work is to deal with external threats. These days the army is on the front due to the tension between Pakistan and India.

It is not that they are just made for war. They are also called for help in any emergency. For example, during the past year, the help of army was taken during the floods of Kerala. Talking about paramilitary forces, it comes under the Home Ministry. India has the largest number of paramilitary forces. Most of them are mainly in the country or in front of the border in the peace environment.

The number of paramilitary forces in the country is about 10 lakh. These paramilitary forces include many different army personnel of the country. These are mainly discussed by CRPF and BSF. Apart from this, ITBP, CISF, Assam Rifles and SSB are also included.

If you talk about CRPF, they are usually deployed within the country in terrorism and naxal-affected areas. It is also deployed during the election or in the VVIP movement. At the same time, the BSF, that is, the Border Security Force is imposed on border duty beyond Bangladesh and Pakistan. BSF then lives on the border when the atmosphere is of peace. For instance, now the BSF personnel are deployed on the Indo-Pak border, but if the situation of war is created then the army is in the forefront instead of BSF.

Apart from this, ITBP is known as the Indo-Tibetan Border Police. They are stationed on the India-Tibet border. At the same time, Assam Rifles usually have to give duty in Assam's insurgency-hit areas. Whereas SSB is the armed force force deployed on the Indo-Nepal border. These are the other CISFs which are responsible for the security of the government undertakings on Central Industrial Security Force.
