crpfNew Delhi: Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) has objected to sharing of operational experience by retiring personnel of armed forces on a recently started public platform saying it will be a “risk” to national security.

The objection came during a meeting called by Personnel Ministry with representatives of CRPF, Defence and Railways ministries, among others to encourage submission of write-ups on ‘Anubhav’–a portal for the retiring central government employees to showcase commendable work done by them during their service.

CRPF representative attending the meeting said that there are some things related to the armed forces that should not go in public domain and hence this information cannot be put on the Anubhav website.

“CRPF representative also stated that as most of the soldier’s time is spent on operational activities in field, it will be a risk to the national security and could compromise the safety where they are deployed,” according to the minutes of the meeting held on May 8.

However, the Personnel Ministry later clarified that in case of Border Security Force, CRPF, Indo Tibetan Border Police, Sashastra Seema Bal, Central Industrial Security Force and other paramilitary forces, there is no need to put up details relating to the operational activities but the administrative experience can be shared.

Moreover, there are many aspects of experience gained during service, the Personnel Ministry officials said.

To which, CRPF representative agreed to share their experience with the coming generations, the minutes said.

Defence Ministry representative emphasised that care must be taken to prevent Anubhav from becoming a grievance portal.

The rationale behind starting the Anubhav platform, which is being monitored by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is that it would provide satisfaction to the retiring employee and also act as a motivator for serving employees.

“This would also be a wonderful opportunity to garner the resource of retiring employees for voluntary contribution to nation building post retirement,” a Personnel Ministry official said.

Government employees retiring within six months have been requested to submit a write up of not more than 5,000 words on the online portal, he said.

About 264 write-ups have already been published on the Anubhav website. Whereas, 42 others are yet to be released and 13 write-ups have been rejected, according to a latest data.
