History


The Decoration was originally founded by Subhas Chandra Bose to reward the Indian Legion for gallantry and valour in battle.

The Award could be conferred upon both Germans and Indians.

The Decoration was later re-instituted by the Azad Hind provisional government during its campaign in South-East Asia. The Decoration was awarded for valour in battle and for meritorious service in non-combative roles. The grades for valour in combat feature crossed swords, and the grades for non-combative service do not feature crossed swords.

The Grand Star is also known as "Sher-e-Hind" (Tiger of India).
