1. Brief History

RPF Zonal Training Centre was previously located at Chink-hill in Solapur division since 1955. In the Year 1994 it was decided by the administration that the same may be shifted to Nashik in Bhusawal Division as Chink-hill Training Centre was facing water problems etc. It was shifted from Chink-hill to Nasik due to various reasons as Nasik is having good climatic conditions, sufficient water supply, power supply and better connectivity from Nasik Road station. The construction of the administrative building and the barracks was started in the year 2001 and the First Phase of it was completed in the year 2006 and the Second Phase in the year 2014. Since 2006 training to RPF staff of Central Railway started.

Railway Board vide letter No. 2009/SEC(Spl)/6/30dtd 24/06/2016 issued approval orders for shifting of TC from Chink-hill to Nasik and accordingly the same was shifted.
