About CRPF Raising Day

Since India’s largest central armed police force came into existence on this day in 1939, July 27 is celebrated as Central Reserve Police Force foundation day every year. CRPF is one of the most gallant security forces we’ve ever seen. During the British imperial rule, these forces were known as Crown Representative’s Police. With the enactment of the CRPF Act on 28 December 1949, soon after India gained independence from the colonial raj, it got its name, Central Reserve Police Force.
