New Delhi, Aug 02, (HS) The Border Security Force (BSF) officers posted in Delhi underwent Field Physical Efficiency Test (FPET) on Sunday at BSF Chhawla Camp here. The Director General BSF S S Deswal was also present on the occasion.

FPET is a combination of physical activities like running, rope work and clearing obstacles. All BSF troops undergo this testing process twice a year and the results are reflected in APAR of individuals as well.

Addressing the officers after the event, DG BSF Deswal emphasised upon the importance of physical fitness especially during the pandemic as well as the onerous task BSF needs to perform while deployed under various scenarios.
