1. Promotion of Health and Hygiene
2. Service to others
3. Relief work during emergencies like flood, fire and other natural calamities
4. National integration
5. World Friendliness Universality

Red Cross Society functions with the one and only aim of serving people in distress without any consideration of caste, religion, language and nationality. The Indian Red Cross Society serves as an auxiliary to the State authorities engaged in social welfare activities accepting the rules and regulations of the State, but at the same time maintaining its autonomy so that it can act always in accordance with the fundamental principles
