The Indian Territorial Force (ITF) was a part-time, paid volunteer organisation within the Indian Army in British India. Its units were primarily made up of European officers and Indian other ranks.

The ITF was created by the Indian Territorial Force Act 1920[1] to replace the Indian section of the Indian Defence Force. It was an all-volunteer force modelled after the British Territorial Army.

The European parallel to the ITF was the Auxiliary Force (India).
