    The Home Ministry on Friday directed all paramilitary forces to ensure speedy treatment of jawans’ grievances even as it filed a report to the PMO stating “no substance” was discovered in the complaint by a BSF guy that poor excellent rations were given to security personnel.

    At a communication to BSF, CRPF, CISF, SSB, ITBP, NSG and Assam Rifles, the Ministry has requested them to conduct an independent inquiry one time a complaint from some other jawan is obtained on any matter and try to solve it as early as you can.

    Sign up complaints, if any, without fear and the seven central forces are requested to inform their personnel, official sources said.

    The paramilitary forces were advised to accept complaints. One has already begun receiving the complaints during e-letter, whereas the other six are advised to follow suit, sources said.
