Shri Sachchidanand Shrivastava, IPS
ADG, J&K Zone CRPF
I consider it a great challenge to be leading Jammu & Kashmir Zone at this critical juncture when the Kashmir Valley is witnessing massive unrest. The Law & Order situation in Kashmir demands
the best out of a CRPF officer and I have no doubt that every CRPF officer and man will do whatever it takes to restore normalcy in the state.
Jammu & Kashmir Zone is one of the largest Zone of CRPF, consisting of 06 sectors (05 Adm and 01 Ops Sector) viz Northern , North West, Jammu, Srinagar, Rajasthan and Ops Kashmir. The Zone
has operational jurisdiction over 06 states and 02 UTs, namely, J&K, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Delhi and Chandigarh. 80 Operational Bns (including one Mahila Bn, Special Duty Group and Parliament Duty Group) are deployed in the area of
the responsibility for performing multifarious duties like combating terrorism in J&K, ROP duty, Static Guards, VIP Security, Parliament Security, Guarding of PMO and residence of SPG protectees, guarding of various vital installations, including Shri Mata
Vaishno Devi Shrine, providing security to pilgrims for Shri Amarnathji Yatra, conduct of free and fair elections as and when held.
The officers and men of this Zone have exhibited zeal and enthusiasm in performance of their duties. This Zone has won many laurels on Operational and administration front. In the area of
Sports and games it has significant contribution by securing ‘Winners’ position in Hockey, Football, Hand ball, Volley Ball and Kabbadi during 2014.
J & K Zone is committed to upholding the CRPF motto of ‘Service & Loyalty’ and enhancing safety and security of the Nation.
