This place is called the birthplace of CRPF, know its history

The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) is said to be the largest among the Central Armed Police Forces of India. It works under the Ministry of Home Affairs of the Government of India. But this police force was given freedom from British identity by the country's first deputy prime minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.

CRPF was formed in the British era on July 27, 1939, under the name of CRP i.e. Crown Representative Police, but after two years of independence, in 1949, the country's first Home Minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel also changed the name of this police force. Patel has also changed its name to the Central Reserve Police Force while retaining the services. Patel has taken this step to liberate the British from their identity.

Reports say that the military cavalry headquarters of north India was made during the British Raj at Neemuch in Madhya Pradesh. In the first war of independence of 1857, the revolutionaries also captured this military cantonment by driving out the British police. After this, the revolutionaries also made this cantonment a headquarters for their movement. It is said that shortly after capturing the cantonment, the British army either killed all the revolutionaries or they were captured and hanged the next day.

The name by which we know Neemuch today has been given by the British. Being an important military cantonment of North India, the British gave it the name NIMACH i.e. North India Military and Kewalry Headquarters. After getting independence, the Government of India did not make any change to this name except spelling.

Neemuch is the shrine for the CRPF: Neemuch holds a special significance for the CRPF jawans. These jawans consider this district to be no less than a place of worship for themselves. The jawans believe that once or the other, all the jawans have to come to this temple of the army to bow their heads. Neemuch is the birthplace of the CRPF, so the entire history of this police force is the gift of this place.
