Hon’ble Home Minister was accorded floral reception by Smt. Archana Ramasundaram DG, SSB on his arrival.  Sh. Rajnath Singh, Hon’ble Union Home Minister, Govt. Of India gave keys of Separate Family Accommodation to the Jawans.

DG SSB in her welcome address elaborated the background of Separate Family Quarters. All the Jawans who are deployed on the border & elsewhere for the security of the country are not able to live with their families and at times they are worried about their loved ones. So, in last few years Home Ministry has accorded consent to construct Separate Family Accommodations at various places so that our Jawans can discharge their duties in a tension-free atmosphere.

In this context, DG SSB also mentioned the personal efforts made by Hon’ble Union Home Minister in pursuing & providing accommodations to the families of Force personnel. She also said that, this facility means a lot to SSB because this will enhance our housing satisfaction in a considerable way.

She also apprised that almost in every ‘Sainik Sammelan’ Jawans from Southern India have always urged that in Southern India also one reserve Battalion of SSB should be established and such types of accommodation should be built for families of Jawans with the help of Home Ministry. She informed 85 acres of land has been allotted to SSB near Hyderabad for the purpose.

She also thanked Union Home Minister for guidance and co-operation for the fresh authorisation of intelligence wing to make the task of border management more effective. This will add another golden leaf in history of Force. Apart from this, she told that cadre review of our personnel is also under advanced stage of consideration and it will open up fresh promotional avenues for SSB personnel.

In his address Sh. Rajnath Singh Union Home Minister, applauded the working of SSB. He empathised the splendid work done in curbing Human Trafficking on Indo-Nepal and Indo-Bhutan by SSB. The task of SSB to guard open & porous international borders is among the toughest task to perform. SSB is performing well in Naxal Areas and even in Jammu and Kashmir at par with CRPF and BSF. He assured all sorts of help & support to SSB from Central Government.

Compared to total authorised number of 29331 for Family Accommodations in SSB only 9871 are available. The family accommodation remains prominent among the priorities. Requisite permission have been received from MHA to construct Separate Family Accommodations in 11 different cities.
