  • The Railway Protection Force (RPF) celebrated its 38th Raising Day on 20th September 2022 by organizing a parade for the first time at the central level at Jag Jeewan Ram RPF Academy, Lucknow. 
  • This is the first time that a National Level Parade of RPF was organized outside New Delhi.
  • The Railway Protection Force was constituted by an Act of Parliament in 1957 for providing security to Railway property. Subsequently, the force was empowered to enquire, arrest and prosecute the offenders involved in unlawful possession of railway property in 1966.
  • Over the years, it was felt that the force needed to be given the status of “An Armed Force of the Union" and finally the status was bestowed upon the force on 20th September 1985 by amending the RPF Act by the Parliament. As a result, 20th September is celebrated every year as the Raising Day of RPF by members of the force and their families.
