NCC at a Glance

The NCC in India was formed with the National Cadet Corps Act 1948. Its origin can be traced back to the University Corps "which was created under the Indian defence Act 1917, with the objective to meet out the shortage of the Army. In 1920, when the Indian Territorial Act was passed, the University Corps was replaced by the University Training Corps (UTC).

In 1942 the "The University Training Corps" was renamed as the "University Officer Training Corps" (UOTC) with a view to create organised trained human resource of youth, Later in 1946 a Committee headed by the Pandit H.N. Kunzru was formed to recommend their valuable suggestions for making (UOTC) more effective to meet out the expectations, Recommendations of this Committee paved the way for the formation of NCC. Finally the NCC came into existence on 16 July 1948 through the NCC Act XXXI of 1948 under the Ministry of Defence in 1949. The girls division was raised in order to give equal opportunities to school and college going girls. The NCC was given an inter-service image in 1950 when the Air Wing was added, followed by the Naval Wing in 1952. During Indo-Pakistan war 1965 and Indo-China war in 1971 NCC Cadets served the country as second line of defence upto the marked expectations.
