New Delhi: Border Security Force (BSF) on Sunday conducted ‘Field Physical Efficiency Test’(FPET) for its officers posted in Delhi on Sunday morning at Chhawla Camp in Delhi.
The BSF Director General SS Deswal was 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 every year and the results are reflected in APAR of individuals as well.
Addressing the officers after the event, Mr Deswal emphasized the importance of physical fitness especially under the pandemic scenario as well as the onerous task BSF needs to perform while deployed under various scenarios.
The physical efficiency test is designed in a manner that the person tests himself or herself at each step of it. The endurance needed for pushing oneself further and accomplishing the task provides much needed satisfaction and self-confidence.
This physical test has helped officers reboot their confidence levels to new highs and would help set an impressive precedent of keeping all ranks combat ready and fit at all places of deployment, the Force said in a statement.
