National Cadet Corps (NCC)


AIMS

The ‘Aims’ of the NCC laid out in 1988 have stood the test of time and continue to meet the requirements expected of it in the current socioeconomic scenario of the country.The NCC aims at developing character, comradeship, discipline, a secular outlook, the spirit of adventure and ideals of selfless service amongst young citizens.Further, it aims at creating a pool of organised, trained and motivated young with leadership qualities in all walks of life, who will serve the Nation regardless of which career they choose.Needless to say, the NCC also provides an environment conductive to motivating young Indians to join the armed forces.

  • Other than just military training the cadets also learn several other valuable things such as selflessness, honesty, discipline, hardwork and ways to build confidence and gain leadership qualities.
  • Since NCC camps are held all over India therefore there is training in a various parts of the country, hence students get an opportunity of visit new places and learn the art of independence.They are required to use their social skills and their senses to get to know new places and adapt to the varying environment.Other than just social skills they also get to learn about the history and art of the new place.
