New Delhi, Nov 26 (ANI): National Security Guard (NSG) commandos positioned at their new centers in four cities and currently placed in temporary locations will have permanent positions by next year.

The permanent structures and multi-storey buildings will come up by next year at these places, said NSG Director General (DG) N P S Aulakh.

Till the permanent structures come up, the commandos will be housed in pre-fabricated structures by mid-December this year at their designated lands, he said.

"The National Building Constructions Corporation (NBCC) had given us the deadline of November 30 for completion of pre-fabricated structures and roads etc. At the most, we will move into all the four hubs by second week of December," said the NSG DG.

Union Home Minister P Chidambaram inaugurated the regional hubs at Chennai, Hyderabad and Kolkata on July 1. The regional hub at Mumbai came into operation from June 30.

The hubs are located at Marol in Mumbai (23 acres), Nedunkundram in Chennai (85 acres), Trimulghery in Hyderabad (22 acres) and Badu in Kolkata (20 acres).

On the training of commandos, the DG said the commando training will be given to the force at its Manesar (Haryana) garrison.

The DG further said post 26/11 terror attacks; they have received requests from state police forces to train their men and special commando units.

The NSG, in a change of operational procedures, will now have augmented coordination between its Army and para-military units during operations. (ANI)
