National Cadet Corps

17/3 Coy. 3(A) BN NCC

National Cadet Corps is a Tri-Services Organisation comprising the Army, Navy and Air Force, engaged in grooming the youth – ‘The Leaders of Tomorrow’ – into disciplined and patriotic citizens. 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 defense and to have a large pool of trained youth available for employment into the Armed Forces.

After independence the present day NCC under the Ministry of Defence came into existence on 16 Apr 1948 through NCC act XXXI, 1948. NCC was formally inaugurated on 15 Jul 1948 as soon as the schools and colleges reopened after summer vacation. The Girls Division of the NCC was started in Jul 1949. In 1950 Air Wing was added on 01 Apr with one Air squadron each at Bombay and Kolkata. 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.

The National Cadet Corps is headed by a Director General, an Army Officer of the rank of Lieutenant General, who is responsible for the functioning of the National Cadet Corps in the country through the National Cadet Corps Headquarters situated at Delhi. At the State Level, the country has been divided into 16 Directorates covering all States and Union Territories. Each of the State National Cadet Corps Directorate Headquarters controls two to fourteen Group Headquarters. While Directorates are commanded by Brigadiers or their equivalents, the Groups are commanded by Colonels or equivalents from the Air Force and the Navy, NCC Units are commanded by Major/Lieutenant Colonel or their equivalents.

NCC..... My path maker.....

"There is a reason for everyone's birth in this world, one must explore the reason and fulfil it, then that person will be a LEGEND"... is the main quotation of my life.But there must be a certain "start" to that exploration.That start must lay a strong foundation for our life further. National Cadet Corps is one such element which stood as a basement for my life in various factors. I would definitely term my life as "life before joining NCC and life after NCC".One can observe a splendid diference in it.

NCC provided me a strong platform for exposing my talents.It indeed helped me in recognising the skills of mine. The most important element is it helped me in building up my confidence levels. The selfconfidence is the element which grew up during my days of NCC.It also helped me in recognising and sharpening the qualities like Discipline, Determination, Dedication, Decency and Dignity. NCC will never incorporate these qualities into any person, but will help only to identify them within the self and get sharpen it. Discipline is the prime element of NCC and it stands on this quality and i personally perceived it in a very justified manner which marked my character very positively. Decency and Dignity are the two qulities which are the tributaries of Discipline were also developed. Determination is the strong element which paved me the path to success in my life till now. NCC also stand upon four cardinals which are the pillars of it. They are Obey with smile, Be punctual, work hard and without fuss, Make no excuses and tell no lies.These cardinals have always been the guiding principles of my life.

NCC also teaches the quality of 'brotherhood' to the cadets. I have atended more than 20 camps in 3 years course of NCC and happened to meet people from different groups and different sections of this society. Everyone work together, eat together, sleep together in tents, perform together and enjoy together. So it was always team effort and we used to live like brothers. The whole concept is of making cadets live together. This is the semblance of Unity and brotherhod. I personally got oppurtunity to meet cadets from different parts of the country and had learnt many things inturn.

NCC also provides oppurtunities to meet various dignitaries of the nation. And I personally met Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, erstwhile president of India, Dr ManMohan Singh, Prime minister of India and many more ministers and also the Ex Army chief Gen JJ Singh and so on. NCC made my dream come true which generally for a normal civilian will still be a dream. I had represented Andhra Pradesh directorate in Republic Day Celebrations-2006, New Delhi and had met all these dignitaries during the course time of this camp. This was one of the brightest moments of my life where NCC paved the path for me. It was here in this camp i had an oppurtunity to meet cadets from different directorates and different states. I had learnt about the different cultures and traditions of the people of different parts of our country. I also could make friends from different parts of the country which was not the case before. In this way NCC helped me in learning about different people of the country and their culture.

NCC is a semi military wing. But it is a youth organisation of india. It is a platform to expose,exhibit and perform our talents. NCC had been the platform for me to perform classical dance which is one of my skills at both state and central level. I could perform infront of  President and Prime Minister and other thousands of guests and spectators and could prove my self. apart from dances, NCC is a platform for singing, National Integration Awareness Presentation, Flag Area(ART), orations etc. I could take part in all of these activities and consequently gained much confidence to present myself before thousands of people.

Representing the country in foreign nations will be a life time oppurtunity and is every citizen's dream always. NCC provides this oppurtunity to its cadets to represent India in foreign nations as Indian ambassadors under YOUTH EXCHANGE PROGRAMME. I am fortunate enough to grab that oppurtunity. I represented India in VIETNAM, HONG KONG,THAILAND as an Indian delegate in November-December 2006. I appeared many examinations and undergone different interviews including the interviews of Deputy Director General of NCC, Additional Director General of NCC and Director General of NCC to be one among the delegation that represented India. One must have good command on the current topics and must keep his general awareness high to breach the walls of these exams and interviews. So NCC indirectly helped me in developing the knowledge and to get a grip on world affairs. And during my trip under YEP i have had an oppurtunity to meet Presidents and Premiers of those nations and also met heads of different organisations. Our delegation also had various exchange programmes with the youth organisations of those nations. I personally learnt many things,the customs, the cultures, traditions of those nations and its people. I was the first cadet from 3(A) Bn, NCC to represent India in foreign nations under YEP. It was a memorable and a life time experience. This is one point where i can say i achieved big at a very young age.I will definitely rate this as my biggest achievement in my life till now.

This gave me immense confidence to face anything and do anything positively. NCC also is a social service wing.It is always there to render social services. I had attended many of these programmes of social upliftment and development in NCC. I participated in Tree plantation programme organised by Aurora Degree College during my first year of NCC. I also participated in Pulse polio Vaccination programme and had a divine chance of giving polio vaccine to "Stars on Earth" the kids. We also organised Blood Donation programmes many times. I along with other cadets actively participated and motivated others to participate in this divine cause. We also organised cycle expedition programmes on many issues. We also had tie-ups with Traffic police departments and voluntarily participated in traffick controlling. We organised rallies and different programmes in bringing awareness among people on issues like AIDS, Deforesation, Global  Warming etc. So NCC also provided me the oppurtunity to have a good hand in social activities.

I could learn many things related to armed forces where normal civilians cannot even dream about. I could fire different rifles and could learn many things related to arms of indian defence sector. i could learn the operation of different rifles and guns.i could meet higher level officers and I could see the organised life of defence officials and had an oppurtunity to closely observe them during my course time of NCC and had learnt innumerable things. NCC surely changed my way of life. Earlier it was just a normal life with no significance but after joining and completing my course in NCC i could say that i have an organised approach towards life. So National Cadet Corps had been one of the important elements which framed my character and personality and i advice all my junirs and friends to join NCC and get your lives enlightened.
