Students and N.C.C

One such need arises in the field of defence. It is the duty of every citizen to protect the sovereignty and integrity of the nation. In doing so students should be ready to stand by the army if the need arises. So after independence it was felt that some kind of military training should be given to students. With this aim in view the N.C.C was started. N.C.C means National Cadet Corps.
