1.Particulars of Indian Red Cross Society organization, functions and duties.

Constituted under an Act of Indian Legislative council in 1920 it is auxiliary to the state authorities and armed forces medical services as per statutes of the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement.

When the first World War broke out in 1914, India had no machinery for organizing relief to those affected by the war, except a branch of the St. John Ambulance Association. Following the example of Britain where war relief services were being rendered by a Joint Committee of the British Red Cross, a branch of the same Committee was started to undertake the much needed relief services in collaboration with the St. John Ambulance Association in aid of the soldiers as well as civilian sufferers of the horrors of the war.

A bill to constitute the Indian Red Cross Society, Independent of the British Red Cross, was introduced in the Indian Legislative Council on 3rd March 1920 by Sir Claud Hill, member of the Viceroy's Executive Council who was also the Chairman of the Joint War Committee in India . The Bill was passed on 17th March 1920 and became Act XV of 1920 with the assent of the Governor General on the 20th March 1920 .

On the 7th June 1920 , fifty members were formally nominated to constitute the Indian Red Cross Society and the first Managing Body was elected from among them with Sir Malcolm Haily as Chairman.

Thus, the Indian Red Cross Society was born in 1920.
