i cannt give rationale behind this but i may think that 'khaki' colour is accepted and continued after british. they may dont want to waste their psychic energy in deciding the colour of uniform . or they have continued this colour like other culture of british.

in our country,watchmen,gurkhas are wearing khaki color dress as their uniform..they are safeguarding us and our things..likewise police are also safeguarding us...i think this is the reason for police using khaki color dress as their uniform.....

i am unable to find out the exact reason, but what ever i was able to find out i am sharing with you Khaki (hindi=dust colored), is yellowish brown color and is most used as military uniforms. it was the color of uniforms introduced by the army regiments in the 1880's, the irish soldiers in the indian britain army usually stained their white clothed uniforms with dirt, dust and tea. and for this probable reason this dirt colored fabric was chosen,and still today this khaki uniforms are still weared by militaries not only in india but by other countries as wells, this color also helps you to camouflage, and probably due to this reason it is also used by the indian police
