  • With India embracing globalization and liberalization, CISF is no longer a PSU-centric organization.
  • Instead, it is now a premier multi-skilled security agency of the country, mandated to provide security to major critical infrastructure installations of the country in diverse areas.
  • CISF is currently providing security cover to nuclear installations, space establishments, airports, seaports, power plants, sensitive government buildings, heritage monuments and even private entities.
