Year After Jawan Complained Of Low-Quality Food On Social Media, Defence Lab To Test BSF Food

Faced with questions over the quality of food, the Border Security Force or BSF has commissioned an assessment by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) to analyse the quality and quantity of meals being served to jawans and officers of the paramilitary force.

The Border Security Force also suggested measures to improve possible shortcomings.

The move comes over a year after a BSF jawan had posted a video on a social media site claiming “watery soup-like dal” and “burnt chappatis” were being served to personnel.

BSF Director General (DG) KK Sharma told news agency PTI in an interview that the first-of-its-kind step was taken on the recommendation of a parliamentary panel that took up the issue recently.
