CISF’s 53rd Raising Day Ceremony
CISF (Central Industrial Security Forces), since its inception on 10th March, 1969 has come a long way, and played a major role in the protection and security of industrial undertakings in the country. The Central Industrial Security Force(CISF) was established with 3 battalions. Each battalion provided integrated security to the public sector undertakings (PSUs). It is no longer a PSU-centric force.

Started with just 3000 crew members, CISF has now the strength of over 1,70,000 members.
