Infosys Bangalore campus gets CISF cover news
31 July 2009

Infosys Technologies today announced the deployment of Central Industrial Security Force personnel at the Infosys campus in Electronic City, Bangalore. Infosys also became the first private sector company to get CISF cover.

Infosys Bangalore campus organised a function, which was attended among others by CISF director-general R K Mishra, and senior Infosys management, including chairman and chief mentor N R Narayana Murthy. Narayana Murthy hoisted the CISF flag at the campus and officially handed over the `security key' of Infosys after a ceremonial guard of honor by the CISF.

The CISF personnel will provide 24X7 protective cover to Infosys, which, intelligence agencies believe, could be a target for terrorists.

CISF will initially detach 101 troopers, including an assistant commandant, an inspector, 12 sub-inspectors, 18 head constables and 69 constables, at the campus in Electronic City, about 15 kms from the city centre. The security cover will be rolled out in three phase.

Infosys will take a daily charge of Rs100,000 on the CISF deployment.

Infosys and several other companies had approached the union home ministry seeking state protection to them over and above their individual security capabilities.
