National Cadets Corps (NCC)

During the pre-independence days there was a great demand from the public that some sort of military training should be imparted to young boys and girls of India.

After India became independent in 1947, the prime minister of India Late Shri Jawaharlal Nehru decided to create an organization to mould to youth of the country into better citizen of tomorrow. He, therefore, appointed a committee headed by Dr H.N. Kunzru, an eminent educationalist to suggest such ways and means of inculcating discipline in the youth of the country and to impart them service training so as to help expansion of the Armed Forces in a National emergency. Kunzru Committee submitted its report in March 1948 which was accepted by Govt. the parliament passed the NCC Act and Rules in 1948. The NCC came into existence on 16th July 1948 under the NCC Act XXXVI of 1948 under the Ministry of Defence with an initial strength of 3835 cadets. Today its strength has risen to more than Fifteen lakhs, from the outlying Andaman and Lakshadweep in our oceans to the highest of Leh, up in the Himalayas; there is hardly a town or a village with a school or college which does not have the NCC. In 1948, the Girls Division was raised in order to give equal opportunities to school and college going girls. NCC was given an Inter – Service outlook in 1950, when the Air Wing was added followed by the Navel Wing 1952. Since the underlying aim of creating National Cadets Corps was to induce discipline amongst the youth of the country, the task of running this organization was entrusted to the members of the Defence Services.
