Railway Board Orders on Civil Dress Code for RPF/RPSF
The Railway Protection Force (RPF) and Railway Protection Special Force (RPSF) have a specific dress code for their officers while on duty. Previously, male officers were required to wear a khaki shirt with a navy blue tie, navy blue trousers, black leather shoes, and a navy blue beret with the RPF/RPSF badge. Meanwhile, female officers wore a khaki shirt with a navy blue scarf, navy blue trousers or skirt, black leather shoes, and a navy blue beret with the RPF/RPSF badge.
However, the latest amendments on the civil dress code for RPF/RPSF officers now allow them to wear civil clothing while off duty or in non-operational areas. Officers have the discretion to choose their own clothing, but it is important for them to maintain a professional and presentable appearance at all times.
Moreover, the RPF/RPSF has clear guidelines on appropriate clothing to wear while on duty or in uniform. Officers are prohibited from wearing any offensive clothing, such as those with profanity, gang-related symbols, or other inappropriate imagery. They are also required to wear their uniforms properly and maintain a neat and clean appearance at all times.
Adhering to these dress code guidelines is crucial for RPF/RPSF officers to project a professional and respectable image while carrying out their duties. Keep yourself updated with the latest amendments on the civil dress code for RPF/RPSF to ensure a smooth workflow.
