The Central Reserve Police Force will henceforth celebrate its anniversary on March 19 every year instead of on different dates every year, rechristening the occasion as ‘CRPF Day’. 

The parade to mark the occasion will also be called ‘CRPF Day Parade’ instead of ‘Anniversary Day Parade’. The CRPF is the only paramilitary force in the country that deviates from its original date of creation, choosing to celebrate the occasion every year on one of the four symbolic dates associated with it.
