INTRODUCTION

 

             The IRBn scheme was formulated by the Union Government to overcome the ever increasing demand from the States for deployment of CPFs on Law & Order and Internal Security Duties.  It also indented to assist the States to reduce their dependence of CPFs.

            IRBns are provided to the State on expenditure sharing basis to strengthen the State Armed Police machinery with a view to improving their capability of handing internal security and law & order situation as also reducing their dependence on CPFs.  It is clarified that IRBns. will be integral part of State Armed Police Bns. notwithstanding their initial funding being shared by the Central Government and that there are some guidelines to be followed which may be different from SAP guidelines.  The general guidelines for raising of India Reserve Battalions are detailed below:-

          An IRBn should normally consist of seven companies out of which 06 companies should be deployable.  One company of the IRBn is to be kept as reserve for rotational training etc. The structure of the Battalion will also include medical, wireless and ministerial components. Structure of a Company should be akin to a company of State Armed Police with appropriate modifications.  However standard Central Police Force structure can also be adopted.

         Under the scheme of India Reserve (IR) Battalions, the Government of India meets the standard cost of raising of IRBn by way of 50% grant and 50% long term interest free loan to the State Government.

         The cost reimbursed by the Central Government is to be spent on procurement of weapons, vehicles and other logistics items.   The State Government has to incur Capital expenditure for providing the basic infrastructure such as land, building etc. to the IRBn in addition to the annual recurring expenditure for IRBn.

        The expenditure on the Battalion after initial raising is to be borne by the State Government. Pay & allowances of personnel of IRBn would be determined by the State and should be similar to personnel of State Armed Police.
