Ghaziabad, March 10: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday said a security audit of the CISF should take place every four months in order to detect the "faults" of the force and help in its improvement.
Addressing the 46th Raising Day of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) here, Rajnath Singh said: "In every four months a special security audit should be done so that their (CISF) faults can be detected and the force can be made perfect."
He further said the CISF, which is responsible for securing critical infrastructure installations in the country, had a pivotal role to play in thwarting terrorist attacks.
"Your core competence is necessary to diffuse terrorism," Rajnath Singh said while he appreciated the undercover operations carried out by the force.
Set up in 1969 to provide security to public sector undertakings, the 1.4 lakh strong CISF is today responsible for protecting nuclear installations, space establishments, airports as well as the Delhi Metro, among other critical installations.
