After the Sino-India war in 1962 and the Indo-Pak War in 1965, some radical changes
in the approach and working of DFP became necessary in view of the urgent need for
boosting the nation’s morale and for mentally preparing the people to meet any external
threat. Accordingly, 34 more new units were created in 1963 and another 33 in 1965
for publicity exclusively in the border areas. Presently, out of the present
strength of 207 Field Units, 72 are Border Units.
