    The Railway Protection Force was established in 1957 to provide security to railway property. In 1966, the force was given the authority to investigate, arrest, and prosecute offenders involved in unlawful possession of railway property. In 1985, the force was granted the status of an Armed Force of the Union by amending the RPF Act. Consequently, every year on September 20th, members of the force and their families celebrate the Raising Day of RPF.
