“Stand up, be bold, be strong, take the whole responsibility on your shoulders and know that you are the creator of your own destiny”.
After the First World War (August 5, 1921), the Indian Defense Force (IDF) was replaced by the Indian Territorial Force (ITF),
of which the University Training Corps (UTC) forms a very important part.
The UTC units were raised primarily with a view to obtain the recruits for the Officers Posts in Territorial Battalions.
The National Cadet Corps (NCC) came into existence on 16 July 1948 under an Act of Parliament. Its motto ‘Unity and Discipline’ has guided NCC in its long-standing effort to mould young volunteers into disciplined and responsible citizens of India. Over the years, in response to the evolving environment, the NCC’s initial military orientation was augmented by dimensions of social service and adventure training.
Empower volunteer youth to become potential leaders and responsible citizens of the country.
To develop leadership and character qualities Mould discipline and nurture social integration and cohesion through multi-faceted programmes conducted in a military environment.
The activities of the NCC are conducted with the following objectives:- To train volunteer youth to become confident, committed and competent leaders in all walks of life To provide ample opportunities to the cadets by way of conducting firing camps, drill practices, personality development and voluntary service programmes. To create an awareness among the student community regarding its importance towards nation building To undertake adventure activities for development of leadership qualities and risk taking abilities To provide an environment that helps to motivate cadets to join the armed forces as a career.
