The Assam Rifles is the oldest paramilitary force of India. It is under the control of the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and they perform many roles including the provision of internal security under the control of the army through the conduct of counter insurgency and border security operations, provision of aid to the civilians in times of emergency, and the provision of communications, medical assistance and education in remote areas.
Since 2002 it has been guarding the Indo–Myanmar barrier as per the government policy "one border one force"
