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.

The following books related to Indian Peace Keeping Mission have been compiled and published by Ministry of Defence:

• The History of Custodian Forces (Indian) in Korea, 1953-54, published in 1976.
• The Congo Operation, 1960-63 published in 1976
• Operation Shanti – Indian Army on Peace Mission in Egypt published in 1990
• Terrific Responsibility – The Battle for Peace in Indo-China (1954-75) published in 1995

This information was given by Defence Minister Shri Manohar Parrikar in a written reply to Shri Palvai Govardhan Reddy in Rajya Sabha today.
