        Mizoram & Cachar Frontier became operational at Silchar from 1st Nov 2006. Before this, it was  functioning in Kashmir Valley  as an adhoc I S Duty Ftr Baramulla with its HQ at Singhpura Baramulla. As Baramulla Ftr, it had Baramulla, Kupuwara and Bandipura Sectors under its command, and was deployed on the Line of Control  and also engaged in counter insurgency operations  in Baramulla & Kupuwara District of Kashmir Valley. After making notable achievements in accomplishing these tasks, this HQ moved to its  present location Silchar and has been renamed as Mizoram & Cachar Ftr.

          Mizoram and Cachar Ftr has three Sectors namely, Cachar, Mizoram and CI Ops Manipur, under its command. Its area of responsibility is spread over three states of Assam, Mizoram and Manipur.
