In the year 1993, Group Centre was raised at the location where CIAT School Shivpuri, exists today. But due to some codal unsuitability of land as GC, in the year 2004, it was shifted to Gwalior where it’s still functioning. This land was subsequently utilized to raise new units upto 2009, when Counter Insurgency and Anti Terrorism School, CRPF came into existence.
