Officials also said that they made a representataion to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh about their expectations from the Sixth Pay Commission and are hopeful that the paramilitary force will get allowances and a pay scale as per their expectations.
ADG Pranay Sahai conferred awards to 19 persons for their meritorious services and ADG Commendation discs.
He also appreciated the efforts of the troops safeguarding the integrity of the nation. He said more than 85 per cent CRPF troops have been deployed in sensitive areas, including the counter-insurgency operations in Jammu and Kashmir and Naxal-affected areas.
