The committee headed by a Special Director General (SDG) rank officer of the force will also deliberate if such personnel can be "absorbed" in other Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) like the border guarding SSB or the airports security force CISF to ensure better "rest and recuperation" for them.
The committee, officials said, has been asked to submit its "specific" recommendations by December 15.
"The idea is to keep the Central Reserve Police Force fighting fit as it is mandated to render some of the toughest internal security tasks in the country like combating Maoists, tackling terrorism in Jammu-Kashmir and insurgency in the north eastern states.
"Recently, the government has entrusted the force with VVIP security duties of some very high-risk personalities. Hence, such an exercise, once implemented, will ensure that the force is combat ready at all the times without taking much wear and tear," the official told PTI.
The committee, as per its terms of reference, will see if an age threshold of 35 years can be kept so that personnel who cross this limit can be sent for duties in the medical, transport and other administrative wings that do not require much sweating on the ground.
The panel has also been asked to dip into all available data of manpower and resources, including that of other CAPFs, before making the final recommendations.
The CRPF, which has over 95 per cent of its strength on active field duty at any given point of time, has been taking the maximum casualties, injuries and diseases as compared to all other CAPFs.
The force was raised in 1939 as the Crown Representatives Police under the British and was renamed the CRPF in 1949.
