The office of the 15th Finance Commission in central Delhi will now be secured by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), an official said today.

The paramilitary force that secures government ministries, departments and 60 civil airports of the country today took over security duties at the Commission's office at Jawahar Vyapar Bhawan located at Tolstoy Marg, a CISF spokesperson said.

"A small contingent has been deployed for the security of the office," force spokesperson Assistant Inspector General (AIG) Hemendra Singh said.

The force would control the access to the office and will also provide it round-the-clock armed security cover against any type of threats.

The 15th Finance Commission, chaired by N K Singh, will submit its report by October 2019. It was set up in November last year.

The five-member Commission, among other things, would suggest norms for devolution of tax revenues between Centre and the states.
