RAISING DAY OF THE INDO-TIBETAN BORDER POLICE (ITBP)

59th Raising Day of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) was organized. Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) was brought under the CRPF Act in 1962, but later in 1992, the parliament of India enacted a separate Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force (ITBPF) Act and provided a proper framework for it. This force is a border-guarding force that guards the Himalayan borders of India from the Ladakh region to Arunachal Pradesh.
