NEW DELHI: The Border Security Force (BSF) proposes to adopt five flood-ravaged villages of Uttarakhand. The force will spend Rs 1 crore for relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction of each of these villages, a BSF spokesperson said.
The BSF personnel also pledged a day's salary, totaling around Rs 16 crore, to the Uttarakhand Relief Fund. The BSF will also give Rs 5 lakh to the personnel of the Uttarakhand police and ITBP who died during rescue operations.
The BSF also plans to hold pre-recruitment training camps at its Doiwala campus for eligible candidates from the flood-affected areas. This would held them in getting a job at central armed forces, said the spokesperson.
