Citation:
Colonel Rajkumar Singh, commanding a battalion of the Punjab Regiment, was assigned the task of occupying a defended position in the area Garibpur-Jaganathpur on the Eastern Front to contain the enemy intruding into the Indian Territory. He planned and organised the defences held by his battalion with great skill and professional competence. The enemy attacked the area with two infantry battalions and a squadron of tanks. Lieutenant Colonel Rajkumar Singh directed his troops with great courage and confidence. 

With utter disregard for his personal safety, he moved from one company locality to another inspiring his junior commanders and troops. The enemy launched three determined attacks but all were beaten back with heavy losses. 

Throughout, Lieutenant Colonel Rajkumar Singh displayed conspicuous courage, exemplary leadership and professional skill.
