New Delhi/ Jaisalmer April 27: If 1997 Bollywood blockbuster movie 'Border' was to be made now, then the scene where Suniel Shetty leaves his newly-wedded wife teary-eyed, immediately after getting married, then the entire scene would have been changed, given the present new rule!

According to news reports, newly-married Border Security Forces (BSF) jawans have a reason to rejoice, as now they can take along-with them their brides.


BSF headquarters have chalked out a new plan for jawans, so that they do not feel isolated from their families at borders.

In the initial phase, the new move will enable jawans to bring their wives for one year, who can stay with them at the barracks and quarters at the Border Out Posts (BOPs).

The major announcement was made at Jaisalmer's Shahgarh-Bulj on Monday, April 25.

BSF Raj Frontier IG, B R Meghwal was quoted saying as, "This very demand has been lingering for quite some time as newly-married jawans are tied up with their duties and have to join soon after the marriage."

"Living with the family will certainly increase efficiency of the soldiers. The sense of alienation, which they feel while being away from their families, would be eliminated. Such jawans will lead tension free life", he further said.

To implement the decision, work is going on to increase housing facilities for the beneficiary jawans.
