National Cadet Corps (NCC) is a Tri-Service Organization comprising the Army, Navy and Air Force, engaged in grooming the youth of the country into disciplined and patriotic citizens. It is the organization which is regulated under the Ministry of Defence. It came into force in 1948 with a view to impart the rudimentary skills and training in handling of weapons of different type, and make them physically tough such that they could face the hardship easily. It acts as the body to provide the basic military training that inculcates the feeling of comradeship, courage, honesty and above all the patriotism.
The NCC is a responsive, learning and continuously evolving organization. Its activity is guided by certain core values that we endeavour to instil among all ranks of the NCC. These include the following:
