The NCC in India was formed with the National Cadet Corps act of 1948.the genesis of the NCC can be traced back to the first world war when the Britishers created the university corps as the second line of defence and to have a large pool of trained youth available for employment into the armed forces.
"Service to others is better then the recitation of chants, hynms and prayers."
During the 1965 and 1971 wars with Pakistan, NCC cadets were the second line of defence. They organised camps to assist the ordnance factories, supplying arms and ammunition to the front, and also were used as patrol parties to capture the enemy paratroopers. The NCC cadets also worked hand in hand with the civil defence authorities and actively took part in rescue work and traffic control. After the 1965 and 1971 indo-pak wars the NCC syllabus was revised. Rather than just being the second line of defence, NCC syllabus laid a greater stress on developing qualities of leadership and officer-like qualities. The Military training which the NCC cadets received was reduced and greater importance was given to other areas like social service and youth-management.
The naval wing of the NCC was raised in jul 1952, thus completing the true representation of all services in the corps. Presently, NCC has approximately 13 lakhs cadets under its fold.NCC has been working in the institution since 1989 in its early state of regional engineering college with the view to create vibrant engineers for the service of nation and mankind. The National Cadet Corps had played a vital role in preparing many generations of our students in becoming responsible Indian citizens.
The motto of NCC is ‘unity & discipline’ which was adopted on 23 December 1957. In living up to its motto, the NCC strives to be and is one of the greatest cohesive forces of the nation, bringing together the youth hailing from different parts of the country and moulding them into united, secular and disciplined citizens of the nation.
