The National Cadet Corps (NCC) seeks to involve young students of the country to constructively utilizing their energies. Youth learns the key to co-operative and harmonious living while engaging in activities like camping, etc while at the same time they imbibe a sense of commitment and camaraderie as they work closely with the larger community. NCC gives a tremendous opportunity to one and all for betterment, irrespective of caste, creed, religion or economic status and instils in them qualities like nationalism, patriotism, discipline and self-confidence.
A lot of activities are being conducted like Parades, Drills, P.T, Armed Drills, and Firing etc. in the college. Along with this, there are several National and Local camps and cadres in which cadets are taking part like CATC, NIC, ALC, BLC, tracking, Rock climbing, Mountaineering, Army attachment camp, Thal Sainik camps and Republic day Camps etc. Cadres are horse riding, scuba diving, Para trooping, Parasailing etc. Games also like football, volleyball, are played at a national and local level. Our cadets take part in all the camps and have won many prizes in various competitions there.
Our cadets get an opportunity to be selected without UPSC written test to Army officers rank simply by attending physical and mental test for which they have to be graduate with 50% marks and ‘C’ certificate in NCC with A or B grade. Security establishments also give preferences in selection for these cadets with ‘C’ certificates.
