Manmohan Singh said the CAPFIMS will serve a long-felt need. It will ensure better health care for the families of the Central Armed Police Forces personnel, who spend much of their time away from home discharging their arduous and onerous responsibilities.
“This will, in turn, lead to higher morale and more efficient functioning of these Forces,” he said. Manmohan Singh said the Central Government had sanctioned 126 additional battalions in these Forces, out of which 71 battalions have already been raised and the remaining are expected to be raised within the current financial year.
