Praising Pareek for being commissioned into the force, the Home Minister himself put the rank stars on her shoulders and said that “the forces are coming forward with such mechanisms.”

BSF first began induction of woman officers back in 2013 and after a training of three years, India has now got their first women BSF officer who would soon be posted to command a unit along the Indo-Pak border in Punjab.

Singh also said that that the Centre has chalked out a new roadmap to strengthen the border security and plans to soon seal the Indian borders with Bangladesh and Pakistan.

He also praised the BSF and said that it is the only force after the Indian military which can operate on land, water, and air.

“BSF is not only the first line of defence but also the first wall of defence.”

In the last three years, Pareek, just like other trainee officers, underwent a 52-week training in battle craft, intelligence gathering and other border guarding tasks.

She has now been commissioned at the entry rank of Assistant Commandant.
