NCC

The main aim of N.C.C. is the development of leadership qualities, character, comradeship, spirit of sportsmanship and dignity of labour in the youth. It also aims at inspiring students to serve the country in war and peace. Enrolment of cadets in the NCC is made at the beginning of the academic year. Enrolment forms can be had from the NCC Officer. The cadets enrolled have to undergo a minimum of four hours training a week, so as to make a total of 80 training hours in a year. In addition to the drill the training syllabus of the cadets also includes first aid, home nursing, map reading, weapon training, social service etc.

Discharge certificate is issued to those who successfully attend not less than 75% of the training periods. B and C certificate examinations are conducted by the end of the academic year. Those who pass the examination will get certificate qualification at the time of recruitment to public service. (Vide G.O.F.No. 32 dated 17.4.1996)
