The National Cadet Corps was raised on 15 July 1948. It can be considered as a successor of the University Officers Training Corps (UOTC) which was established by the British in 1942.  It’s Head Quarters at New Delhi. It is open to school and college students on a voluntary basis. The National Cadet Corps in India is a voluntary organization which recruits cadets from high schools, colleges and Universities all over India. The Cadets are given basic military training in small arms and parades. The officers and cadets have no liability for active military service once they complete their course but are given preference over normal candidates during selection based on the achievements of the corps. Rather than just being the second line of defence. NCC gives a greater stress on developing qualities of leadership and Officer-like qualities. The greater importance has been given to the areas like social service and youth-management.




The ‘Aims’ of the NCC laid out in 1988 have stood the test of time and continue to meet the requirements expected of it in the current socio–economic scenario of the country. The NCC aims at developing character, comradeship, discipline, a secular outlook, the spirit of adventure and ideals of selfless service amongst young citizens. Further, it aims at creating a pool of organized, trained and motivated youth with leadership qualities in all walks of life, who will serve the Nation regardless of which career they choose. Needless to say, the NCC also provides an environment conducive to motivating young Indians to join the armed forces.

The DKM NCC Troop (Senior Wing) under the control of 1 (TAMILNADU) BATTALION NCC, MADRAS – A GROUP was started in 2004. The first year students are enrolled for a duration of three years. With a sense of nationalism and secularism outlook the DKM NCC Troop has always carried out activities with a distinct emphasis on social services, discipline and adventure training. Periodically, some of the Cadets are selected to undergo the adventurous and rigorous military training in attachment with regular Army training Centres, rock climbing, Mountaineering Camps, Trekking Camps, Army Attachment Camps, National Integration Camps etc., 

Lt. Dr. A. Amirthavalli of the Department of History was the first commissioned officer in command of the college Troop for 9 years from 2006 to 2015. Later NCC was withdrawn due to Non-Availability of NCC Caretaker.

After so many Hardships the DKM NCC Troop NO: 38 was raised again in the College in the year 2020 under the control of 10 (TAMILNADU) BATTALION NCC (Vellore), MADRAS – A GROUP. The DKM NCC Troop functions under the leadership of Lt. M. Gayathri, Associate NCC Officer.
