RPF ALWAYS SAID IT IS ARMED FORCE OF THE UOI... UNDER THE REPEAL AND AMENDMENT ACT,2001-sections appertaining to RPF as armed FORCE OF THE UOI have been repealed.... but again it was otherwise indicated that in later years, the same status of RPF as armed FORCE OF THE UOI has been restored by repealing the above Act passed in 2001; I tried to get the matter verified from known sources, but could not find how much truth is there in REPEAL of the ACT passed in 2001...is it possible???

Till 2001, as per the RPF Act of 1985 or otherwise, RPF has been conferred with the status of an Armed FORCE OF THE UOI, but the same was outrightly removed by REPEAL AND AMENDMENT ACT 2001by repealing the SECTIONS of the Act; but the same was found to have been restored ONCE again in LATER YEARS,may be after 2010 or so, BY repealing the earliest R& Act 2001;;;!!! If so, can I get the special GAZETTE NOTIFICATION ORDERS CONNECTED TO THIS MATTER... GETTING REPLY FROM RAILWAY BOARD RPF IS SECONDARY THROUGH RTI... MAY BE BETTER IF CAN GET CLARIFICATION FROM OUR LCI PLEASE,IT WORLD'S LARGEST NEWS THAT REFLECTS EVEN THE PRESENT SITUATIONS AND FACTS AS PER LAW.

RPF is not at par with that of the ARMED FORCES of DEFENCE PERSONNEL, Army,Navy and AirForce, but for all purposes RPF has been conferred with the status of an Armed FORCE OF THE UOI,at par with that of other CENTRAL GOVERNMENT uniformed services, like that of BSF ,CRPF,CISF,ITBP AND SO ON WHICH ARE UNDER THE CONTROL AND COMMAND OF THE MINISTRY OF HOME AFFAIRS, while RPF, the only UNIFORMED SERVICES FORCE IS KEPT IN THE CAMMAND AND CONTROL OF THE MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS... May kindly clarify
