The responsibility of India’s top secret intelligence services is to give intelligence support to the Defense services of India. Research and Analysis Wing of India was founded in 1968, is mainly involved in guarding the country from attacks from Pakistan and China.

R&AW is the primary foreign intelligence agency of India. Other functions of R&AW include collecting the external intelligence and counter-terrorism. R&AW is engaged in protecting the country from many attacks from the foreign nations.
