New Delhi, Aug 30: Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) has decided to get the security cover from the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) for its Jamnagar refinery in Gujarat.
RIL's Jamnagar refinery, is world's biggest Greenfield refinery.
According to sources, the RIL has conveyed its decision to the Union Home Ministry that they are now keen to take the CISF security cover. The CISF personnel are likely to be deployed in Jamnagar by Sep 2009.
Though the Home Ministry has cleared the request of the RIL a couple of months ago, but the RIL has sought time to reconsider its decision, sources added.
The RIL is the second private company to get protection from the CISF after the Central Government's announcement that the central police forces would be available for guarding private installations.
The software major Infosys is the first private company to have a security cover from CISF. The central police force is giving the protection to Infosys head office in Bangalore since Jul 2009.
