The CRPF has been allocated Rs. 5,745.87 crore in the 2010-11 budget.

New Delhi: Central paramilitary forces, especially those fighting Maoist rebels, have been sanctioned less money for the coming fiscal in the budget presented by Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee Friday.

The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), the world's largest paramilitary force, which is heading the fight against Maoists with maximum number of personnel, has been allocated Rs. 5,745.87 crore in the 2010-11 budget against Rs.6,838.84 in 2009-10. The CRPF is also deployed in Jammu and Kashmir and northeastern states.

The Border Security Force (BSF), deployed mainly along the India-Pakistan and India-Bangladesh borders, was given Rs.5,471.33 crore for the coming year, compared to Rs.6,329.14 crore this year.

The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) - that guards public sector undertakings, the Delhi Metro and airports across the country - sees a cut of over Rs.200 crore. It has been given Rs.2,022 crore compared to Rs.2,224 crore this year.

The central paramilitary Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB), deployed along the India-Nepal border, sees a cut of Rs.100 crore. It has received Rs.1,394 crore this budget.

The gainers are the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), which guards the India-China border, and the elite commando force, the National Security Guard (NSG).

The ITBP was given Rs 1,520 crore against Rs 1,508 crore. The NSG was given a hike of nearly Rs.30 crore with a sanction of Rs.352 crore.
