MHA Deputy Secretary (Personnel) RBS Negi, through a letter dated 18 July, replied that the ministry did not have the required information.

"I find this both surprising and shocking that the MHA does not even have this basic information about its paramilitary forces," Thakur told IANS.

Negi has transferred the RTI application to the six paramilitary forces, Border Security Force, Central Reserve Police Force, Central Industrial Security Force, Sashastra Seema Bal, India-Tibetan Border Police and Assam Rifles, directing them to provide the information.
