The BDR is responsible for protecting the country's international boundaries
Bangladesh's government has approved proposals to change the name and uniform of border guards who mutinied a year ago.
The Bangladesh Rifles will now be known as the Border Guards Bangladesh.
According to the proposals, the new uniforms will remain khaki but incorporate a new camouflage pattern.
It is not clear how much the changes will cost. Several trials are under way of thousands of border guards accused of taking part in the mutiny.
The mutiny took the country to the brink of nationwide conflict. More than 70 people were killed, including 57 officers.
The proposals will now be put to parliament which is expected to endorse them.
