With immense joy and pride, I took charge as CG Home Guards and Director Civil Defence on 8 September 2021. I feel greatly honoured to lead the Home Guard department of the state.
Uttarakhand Home Guard and Civil Defence organization works with a motto of ?selfless service.? It is? devoted to working for the community and providing social security to the people of the state. Home Guard organization works as an auxillary with the police force in efficiently maintaining internal security, traffic control, and management of disaster. The organization plays a vital role in conducting char dham yatra, in managing different fairs and in conducting free and fair elections. The charter of Home Guard lays great onus upon the shoulders of Home Guards in performing their duties with great zeal, honesty and full devotion.
First of all, I pay my homage to our Home Guards who have made the supreme sacrifice of their lives while performing their duties. My first and foremost priority will be to look after the welfare of Home Guards. A special focus will be laid upon enhancing of infrastructural needs of the department. I expect all the officers and employees to maintain? healthy and positive inter personal relations. Sincere and continuous efforts needs to be undertaken in redressing grievance of our Home Guards.
New initiative in modernizing and corrective measures are being taken, that demands constant changes in our organization, in our administrative system, in our recruitment process and in our training for a great future ahead. We should gear up to become a modern, responsible and dependable organization for the benefit of state.
I am pretty sure in time to come we will be able to face the future challenges towards prosperity following our motto of selfless service.
