          The National Cadet Corps  “Unity and Discipline”

The National Cadet Corps is the youth wing of the Indian Armed Forces with its headquarters in New Delhi, India.  Comprising the Armythe Navy and the Air Wing, engaged in grooming the youth of the country into disciplined and patriotic citizens. The soldier youth foundation in India is a voluntary organization which recruits cadets from all over India. The NCC in India was formed with the National Cadet Corps Act 1948. It was raised on July 15, 1948. It can be traced back to the ‘University Corps’, which was created under the Indian Defence Act 1917, with the objective to make up for the shortage in the Army. In 1920, when the Indian Territorial Act was passed, the ‘University Corps’ was replaced by the University Training Corps (UTC). A committee headed by H N Kunzru recommended a cadet organization to be established in schools and colleges at a national level. The soldier youth foundation Act was accepted on 15 July 1950. In 1949, the Girls Division was raised in order to give equal opportunities to school and college going girls. During Indo-Pakistani war of 1965 & Bangladesh-Pakistani war of 1971, NCC cadets were the second line of defence. They organized camps to assist ordnance  factories, supplying arms and ammunition to the front and also were used as patrol parties to capture enemy paratroopers. After the 1965 and 1971 wars, the NCC syllabus was revised. Rather than just being a second line of defence, the revised NCC syllabus laid 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 social service and youth management.NCC was firstly started in 1666 in  Germany.
