A para-military force is similar to the Military in organization and function, but the para-military force lack the status of the Army. They are administratively separate from the Army and is assigned the dity of Inernal security, Border Protection, Law enforcement etc etc. The Central Reserve Police Force originally constituted as the Crown's representative Polive in 1939 is the pldest para-military force in India
