Welcome To TWDI

The War Decorated India is one of the most unusual organisations in India. Membership is not achieved by birth, social status, political appointment, wealth, academic achievement or other requirements that most societies and organisations demand.

The War Decorated India was organised on 01 August 1991, at Chandigarh, by a group of Sainiks; who had the honour of having received the Vir Chakra series of awards. Membership is limited to recipients of our Nation’s three highest decorations; awarded for a conspicuous show of gallantry and intrepidity in the face of enemy; for prowess shown above and beyond the call of duty. This determines who its members will be.

The Aim & Objectives of the organisation include, besides bringing all holders together for their mutual welfare, to extend all possible relief to needy members, their widows, children & parents. Advancement of the best interests of members of the Armed Forces of India and to enhance their prestige, to stimulate patriotism in the minds of our youth and to promote allegiance to the Government of India; are some of the other objectives.

It is inevitable, with members scattered widely all over India that keeping in touch is difficult. But, the triennial National Convention-cum-Reunions, lasting" a few days, give members an opportunity to make and maintain lasting friendships for sharing problems as well as happiness into the future.
