Civil Dress Code for RPF/RPSF – Latest amendments: Railway Board Order dated 16.03.2023
The Railway Protection Force (RPF) and Railway Protection Special Force (RPSF) have specific dress codes for their officers while on duty. The uniform for male officers includes a khaki shirt with a navy blue tie, navy blue trousers, black leather shoes, and a navy blue beret with the RPF/RPSF badge. Female officers wear a khaki shirt with a navy blue scarf, navy blue trousers/skirt, black leather shoes, and a navy blue beret with the RPF/RPSF badge.
However, when off duty or in non-operational areas, RPF/RPSF officers are required to dress in civil clothing as per their own discretion. It is important to note that even in civil clothing, officers are expected to maintain a professional and presentable appearance.
The RPF/RPSF also has guidelines for their officers regarding the types of clothing that are appropriate to wear while on duty or in uniform. Officers are not allowed to wear anything that may be deemed offensive, such as clothing with profanity, gang-related symbols, or other inappropriate imagery. Additionally, officers are required to wear their uniforms properly and maintain a neat and clean appearance at all times.
It is important for RPF/RPSF officers to adhere to these dress code guidelines to maintain a professional and respectable image while carrying out their duties.
