Shri Khadar Vali, Padma Shri recipient of 2023, known as millet man of India, conducted the seminar.

Millets are full of vitamins, minerals, fibers etc. and have more nutritional content than conventional grains. In BSF messes, millets are being extensively used in the food preparation. It will also be pertinent to mention here that Food and Agriculture Organization and United Nation has recognized 2023 as International year of Millets for awareness about health and nutritional benefits of Millets.

Senior officers, troops and their family members were present during the seminar. The seminar  will certainly go a long way in motivating the BSF personnel to adopt millets in their daily diet and lead a healthy lifestyle.
