Values Adopted by Indian Armed Forces
The Government is aware of Seven Values adopted by US Armed Forces like duty, honour integrity, loyalty, respect, personal courage and selfless service.
The Indian Army’s Integrated Charter and Leadership Training forms essential part of infusing leadership traits and officer like qualities. The Credo of ‘safety honour & welfare of your country comes first, always and every time. The honour and welfare of the men you command come next, your own safety, honour and welfare comes last, always and every time’ forms the guiding beacon for the Indian Army. Further, the training academies have mottos which inspire the aspiring officers to imbibe the best ethos.
The values adopted by Chinese, Russian, German, French and Israel Armed Forces are studied by the officers through biographies of prominent military leaders as part of academic study and promotional exams.
