The Mysore establishment of software giant Infosys will be next to get CISF security cover after its office as well as the Electronics City complex in Bangalore were provided the same.
The government has sanctioned 48 posts of the paramilitary force in various ranks which will deploy its Quick Reaction Team (QRT) at the Infosys campus at Hebbal Electronics City, Hootagalli in Mysore.
Home Minister P. Chidambaram announced the decision at a press conference here. “CISF continues to add new clients in the private sector. Additional posts were sanctioned for providing security to two establishments or installations.... Infosys Technologies Limited Mysore (48 posts),” he said.
According to senior CISF officials, the Infosys had requested the government for a security cover at their Mysore facility, similar to the one they got in July last year for their Bangalore campus.
The deployment of the force will take place soon, a senior officer said.
While the Bangalore facility of the software company has 101 CISF personnel, the Electronics City in Bangalore has 68 men for providing security cover.
