NCC came into existence, on 16th July, 1948, under the National Cadet Corps Act XXXI of 1948. NCC is a voluntary program and part of the educational activity, and Education Ministry deals with NCC in all states. The National Cadet Corps (NCC) is a youth development movement. It has enormous potential for nation building.

And that Division of NCC, to which female students from Colleges and Plus Two institutions (XI and XII classes) are enrolled, is referred as a Senior Wing (SW). The Division of NCC, to which male students from schools (of 13 Years or more of age) are enrolled, is referred as a Junior Division (JD).

The age limit for JD/JW Cadets is 13 to 18 years and for SD/SW Cadets is up to 24 years. There is no necessity to pay any fees, a token amount of money as yearly Regimental subscription and Cadet Welfare Society contribution is required to be paid by every cadet. The duration of time for JD/JW Cadets is Two Years and after completion they will earn ‘A’ Certificate. The duration of time for SD/SW Cadets is Two Years with one year extension and will earn ‘B’and ‘C’ Certificates.

It is not compulsory that students who undergo NCC should join Armed Forces later and they should donate blood or Organs. Merit and extraordinary work/performance is duly recognized at every level (at the Sub-Unit/ Unit/ Group/ Directorate/ HQ DGNCC levels) and is adequately rewarded/awarded in the NCC.

If students are selected for Centrally Organized Camps/ Youth Exchange Programme, they get a chance to visit other states in the country. NCC cadets are given Army, Air Force and Navy training and the purpose is to expose them to a regimented way of life which is essential for inculcating the values of discipline, dutifulness, punctuality, orderliness, smartness, respect for rightful authority, good and correct work ethos and self-confidence.

So, each and every student at junior level or in the senior level who wish to see themselves as better and responsible citizens of this country, and look for over all development should definitely look forward to becoming NCC Corps.
