Thanks, Henk. I'd heard of the BSF and SBS but not the third!

GRI – old Imperial button ? ‘Georges Rex Imperator
KP = Kolkata Police
RPF = Rajasthan Police [Force]?

Just looking at the buttons, I think they might be the following

Tope row, 5th from left Central Industrial Security Force (The I is missing so could possibly be a manufacturer's mistake)

Middle row, 2nd from the left Jammu and Kashmir Police.

I have just returned from a trip to India and noticed that a lot of private security companies wear uniforms very similar to Police/paramilitary forces. Some of these buttons could belong to these organisations.
