Meet the new Director General of the National Security Guard

RC Tayal new DG OF NSG
The central government has appointed senior IPS officer R C Tayal as the new chief of the elite counter-terror force National Security Guard (NSG). He is expected to take charge later this week. 


The 1980-batch Assam-Meghalaya cadre officer is presently serving as the Special Director General in paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and is heading its formation in Jammu and Kashmir, according to a PTI report. 
He would serve as the NSG DG till August next year. 
The post fell vacant after incumbent chief J N Choudhury retired on May 31. 
Hailing from Haryana, Tayal has earlier served as an Additional DG in the Sashastra Seema Bal during his stint at the centre. 
NSG was raised in 1984 as a federal contingency force with a specific aim to undertake counter-terror and counter-hijack operations and it was later tasked to protect high-risk VVIPs.
