Patna Frontier


I assumed the charge of Inspector General, Frontier Patna on 5th January, 2018 and proud to head the largest Frontier of SSB with 12 Battalions deployed on Indo-Nepal border for border guarding duties and 05 Battalions deployed for Anti Naxal Operations in the states of Bihar and Jharkhand.

As I have already served as DIG, SHQ Muzaffarpur, held the charge as DIG, SHQ (Spl Ops) Gaya and also officiated as Inspector General, Frontier Patna in the last two and a half years, I am well aware about the difficulties being faced by our field commanders in Border out Posts (BOPs) and Battalions (BNs). Our troops are deployed in remote locations and treacherous terrain in some areas. My special focus will be on strengthening the basic infrastructure especially at BOP level.

This year Patna Frontier was awarded Best Frontier in operations, Best Frontier in Anti Human Trafficking and Best Frontier in Rescue and Relief operations. I would urge all the officers and men of this Frontier to continue to strive ahead to maintain these trophies in coming years.

I also urge officers specially at supervisory level to maintain cordial relations with the men under their command and take care of them. They should involve themselves in operations and special efforts be made to check smuggling of Narcotics, Liquor, Prohibited items, FICN, Wild Life Products etc.  Special emphasis be paid to Anti Human Trafficking efforts. I also urge all officers/men on border not to cross International border without prior approval.

As our Frontier has been mandated to guard 631 Kms of Indo-Nepal border in Bihar which is open and porous, we have to maintain the sanctity of the border and at the same time maintain cordial relations with border population with no skirmishes. We are conducting several Civic Action Programmes including Medical and Veterinary Civic Action Programmes, Educational Excursions, Vocational Training Programmes, Man Friday Programmes etc.  for the upliftment and welfare of border population.  The tempo and pace in which these programmes are being conducted need to continue so that the motto of SSB Sewa, Suraksha & Bandhutwa is furthered.

    I wish our men in the border all success in the year 2018 and hope that they will continue to work hard with same determination, dedication and hard work.
