Border Security Force (BSF), the country’s premier
paramilitary force tasked with securing its borders has approved placement of
the contract for Rs 228 crore Intranet Prahari project to NIIT. The project
involves setting up of the complete infrastructure, network and applications to
facilitate operations management, integrated financial activities, and human
resources management for the force. BSF  has been growing steadily since its
inception in 1965.

Today, it has over 157 battalions, with another 27
battalions in 9 sectors and 3 more frontiers to be raised in a phased manner.
Through the Intranet Prahari program, all frontiers and battalions across the
country would be connected to each other.  The supply and set-up of the entire
infrastructure of the project includes establishment of a central data center,
10 mini data centers, a disaster recovery center and infrastructure in a total
of 230 sector Headquarters and battalions. Applications on state-of-the-art
technology would be configured and deployed across data centers and remote
locations.  NIIT Technologies had executed a similar turn-key engagement for the
Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) called SELO an acronym for Service and
Loyalty.
