National Cadet Corps

The National Cadet Corps (NCC) is the Indian military cadet corps with its head Quarters at New Delhi. It was established in India during the year 1948 and since then, it remains open on voluntary basis for both college and school students of the country. Air Force, Army and Indian Navy are three groups which are involved in grooming of the country's youth into patriotic, responsible and well-disciplined citizens.
