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.
