THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Indian Reserve Battalion Commando (IRB) Rankholders’ Association has urged the State Government to expedite recruitments from the rank-list. Only 200 candidates were appointed from the rank-list with 999 candidates published by the PSC in June, 2010.  The Association office-bearers told reporters here on Thursday that the shortage of personnel in the commando force was posing severe challenges to security of the state.

The reports of security threats to places of worship such as Sabarimala

and Sree Padmanabhaswamy temples and the Vizhinjam port underlines the need for strengthening the force.  Almost all states have more than two commando battalions, they said.

They requested the government to appoint the remaining candidates in the list to the second battalion of IRB before the expiry of the rank-list.
