BSF full form

Today, I’m here to discuss all about BSF such as BSF full form, Qualification, Age Limit, Highest Post, How To Join BSF ? and other important details about it.

Hello everyone, how are you ?, I hope that all of you are doing great.

Today’s topic is very important for all the people who love to become a part of Border security force or an officer in BSF.

For your kind information, I just want to clear that becoming an officer in BSF or a part of BSF is really a herculean task.

But, you cannot say that it’s impossible.

Moreover, sometimes I have seen that people are confused between Indian Army & other forces like BSF, CRPF, CISF etc.

Actually, Indian army and other forces ( BSF, CRPF, CISF ), which I explained above are completely different in process.

It means, the process to achieve BSF & Indian army is completely different. Even the work profile is different for both of them.

Since, this article is about BSF, here we will only focus on details related to BSF.

Firstly, I will tell you about what BSF is.

After that I will discuss other important details related to it.

So, without wasting your valuable time, let’s start the topic.

BSF full form, Qualification, Age Limit, Highest Post & How To Join BSF ? –

1. What is BSF ? –

The people who really love Indian army, definitely this question will have come into the mind and that is ‘ what is BSF ? ‘

Because, BSF is a very popular force in India and it’s very tough to achieve.

BSF is nothing but it’s a type of force which is deployed on the borders ( like India-Bangladesh, India-Pakistan ) of the country.

The work of BSF is only to see that there is no illegal intrusion on the borders from the contiguous country.

As a result, the country can feel safe and has no problem.

Now, I think you must have understood about what BSF is.

If you are interested to know about IPS or IAS, you can read the article by clicking the provided link.

2. BSF full form –

The most important question is ‘What is BSF full form ?’

Before starting the preparation of BSF you must know the BSF full form so that you don’t feel hesitation at the time of asking by someone.

BSF full form is nothing but it’s Border Security Force.

Now, I think there will be no problem to tell anyone about BSF full form.

3. What is the age limit for BSF ? –

When a student starts preparing for BSF, the first question comes into the mind, what is BSF full form ? and second one is about the age criteria.

Both of these questions are very important to know related to BSF. By chance, if you miss the answers of these questions, definitely you may face difficulties.

Since, I have already discussed above BSF full form, so here we will focus only on the age criteria.

Well, the age limit is different for different posts. However, I am telling you the range of the ages that is from 18 to 28 years.

It means, if you are between this range, you can apply for respective post in BSF.

4. What is qualification for BSF ? –

If we focus on the qualifications for BSF, I already told you the required age limit for it, but there are other norms which should be followed by an interested person.

Since, BSF includes a lot of ranks, according to ranks you have to prepare yourself.

However, you can check other norms for BSF from other resources, but here I’m telling you that you will definitely go through Physical Test ( Chest, Height, Long Jump, High jump & Running ), Written Examination & Interview Process according to the respective post.

5. What is the salary of BSF Jawan ? –

Often, I have seen that people get a job and do it properly, but at initial stage they often confuse about the salary.

In the same way, if you are selected for BSF and this question is coming into your mind, I would say that a BSF Jawan gets the salary according to the rank.

Because, BSF includes a couple of ranks. This is why, we cannot tell the exact salary. It only depends on the rank.

The ranks which come in the criteria of BSF can provide you salary from INR 18,000 to 105000.

This range of salary includes all the posts in BSF such as Enrolled Follower, Constable, Head Constable, Sub-Inspector, Inspector, Special Director General, Director General and more.

6. How can I Become a BSF officer ? –

As we know, it is very difficult to be a part of Border Security Force, but it is more difficult to become a BSF officer.

Actually, to become a BSF officer you will have to meet the required norms, which are really tough.

Because, to be a part of BSF and to become a BSF officer both are different things.

Well, there are a lot of ways to become a BSF officer, but if you want to choose the best and simple way, you should go through SSC CPO.

SSC CPO exam is conducted every year by Staff Selection Commission in which you get a chance to become Sub-Inspector GD in BSF.

After achieving this post, you can easily know about the other ways to hold the higher ranks in BSF.

Hence, I will suggest you to go through SSC CPO.

7. Which is the highest post in BSF for Officers ? –

By the way, when you go deeply in BSF structure, you get a bundle of ranks which can be held by anyone who is interested or dedicated to BSF.

For your knowledge, I am telling you some of the ranks of BSF in descending order. These ranks are very popular in BSF.

  • Director General ( highest post, which is available for IPS officers )
  • Special Director General
  • Additional Director General
  • Inspector General
  • Deputy Inspector General
  • Commandant
  • Second-In-Command
  • Deputy Commandant
  • Assistant Commandant ( 3 stars )
  • Assistant Commandant ( 2 stars )

All these are the ranks in BSF.

8. Can I join BSF after 10th ? –

Yes, you are free to join BSF after 10th as a BSF constable or ASI or CT. These are the posts in BSF which can be joined by a 10th passed out student.

But, make sure that they have ITI diploma for some specific posts.

Eventually, I hope that the article must have fulfilled your needs. Because, I have discussed all the prominent information here.

If you really enjoyed the article, please share it to those who need it.

Thank you.

Hello everyone, My name is Vijay Gupta and I belong to a very small town that is situated in district Hardoi, which is in Uttar Pradesh. 1. Education – I’ve completed my primary education from a private school that is situated in my hometown and upper primary, matric and higher secondary education have been completed from a government college. Well, I was an average student till class 5th, but I accelerated my preference towards studies from class six. Consequently, I passed out many classes with good positions. Even I passed out 12th with good marks ( 405/500 ) and topped my college. Due to getting good marks, I got a cheque of 500 rupees and was rewarded by the Principal of my college. After completing my 12th, I prepared twice for IIT ( Indian Institute of Technology ) from Aakash institute, but unfortunately, I failed to get selected into the best IIT colleges. But during the preparation, I was being graduated from CSJMU Kanpur. I completed my graduation in 2016 and now I’m pursuing an educational degree ( B.Ed. ). 2. Profession – Although I love teaching, but I also do blogging. Both are my favorite jobs.
