Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram today launched ‘Intranet Prahari Project’ which was implemented by NIIT Technologies Ltd, for Border Security Force (BSF) personnel.
“This is a major benefit from the Intranet Prahari Projet apart from efficient office management which will help in quick decision making,” said Chidambaram.
Under this project, worth Rs. 229 crores, network connectivity has been extended up to Battalion level i.e to 237 locations of Border Security Force.
State-of-the-Art Data Centres have been established; the Main Data Centre; a Disaster Recovery Data Centre (in a different seismic zone) and Mini Data Centres at Frontier HQrs for data storage.
