  • The paramilitary force works under the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Army works under the Ministry of Defence.
  • Paramilitary forces maintain peace in the country by working on terrorism and naxalism etc., whereas the army mainly does the work of war with other countries. And cross border operation.
  • The BSF keeps an eye on the border at all times while the army takes over the front during the war.
  • BSF personnel live on the border while army personnel prepare themselves for war by keeping them behind the border.
  • The soldiers of the Indian Army get more facilities than the soldiers of the paramilitary force. Like canteen, army school etc.
  • In the Indian Army there are ranks like lieutenant, general, marshal brigadier etc. whereas in BSF there are posts like constable, head constable, SI, DAI etc.
