About : 

  • The NCC was formed in 1948 by an Act of the Parliament with a view to inculcate the qualities of initiative, self-confidence and a sense of responsibility, which are the essential ingredients of leadership among the youth of the country. The aim of NCC training is not only to produce material for the armed forces but also to provide leaders for other fields of our national activities and to inculcate defence consciousness in our youth.
  • The NCC is the best organised and premier youth organisation in the country with 13 Lakhs students on its roll and it helps in national integration by providing an opportunity to students of all States in getting together on All India Camps. It provides mountaineering, skiing, flying, gliding, paratrooping and boat pulling training to the cadets in addition to elementary military training.
