The officers and personnel from Army are posted to Border Roads Organisation (BRO) on Extra Regimental Employment (ERE) / tenure posting with the approval of Government from time to time.
The Cabinet Committee on Security, during September 2006 had approved restoration of manpower strength of GREF (BRO) to the 2002 level of 42,646 and 151 new units were required to be raised in GREF (BRO) by March 2009. Against 151 new units sanctioned in restructuring of BRO in September 2006, 133 units have already been raised and balance 18 units are yet to be raised.
After 1987-1988, the strength of BRES (Civil) cadre has substantially increased on restructuring of Border Roads Organisation approved by CCS in September, 2006 as per details given below:-
|S/No||Name of Post||Strength before restructuring||Strength after restructuring|
|(iv)||EE (Civ) / Major||171||299|
|(v)||AEE (Civ) / Capt||291||450|
However considering the ensuing need of the organisation a fresh cadre review proposal of BRES (Civil) cadre is under process.
