The President’s Colour Award will be conferred upon the Assam Police Force. Union Home Minister Amit Shah will bestow the honour on Assam Police on May 10.

The President’s Colour Award is awarded to a military unit for outstanding service to the country in both peace and war. It’s also known as ‘Nishaan,’ an emblem worn on the left sleeve of all unit officers’ uniforms.

Assam Director General of Police (DGP) Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta stated that the event is a historic one for the Assam Police Department and that the department is preparing for it.

Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta, speaking to the media, said, “We want to have a very unique and colourful parade as the award itself is very prestigious. Union Home Minister Amit Shah will present the award to the police. Our state will be the 9th state to receive the award.”

DGP Mahanta also mentioned that a new flag will be created for the occasion. He said, “We are also designing a unique flag for the day. The flag will be designed by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati with 36 stars embedded on it.”

Motorcycle rallies will be arranged throughout Assam to make people know about the prestigious ‘Colour.’

“I have directed Assistant Inspector General (AIG) of Police for Sports Anand Mishra to take leadership of the motorcycle rally to be organised in each district of Assam. I will launch the ‘Ride with Pride’ motorcycle awareness campaign in Dhubri within one of these days.” the DGP stated.
