National Cadet Corps
The NCC in India was formed with the National Cadet Corps Act of 1948. It was raised on 15 July 1948 The National Cadet Corps can be considered as a successor of the University Officers Training Corps (UOTC) which was established by the British in 1942. During World War II, the UOTC never came up to the expectations set by the British. This led to the idea that some better schemes should be formed, which could train more young men in a better way, even during peace times. A committee headed by Pandit H.N. Kunzru recommended a cadet organization to be established in schools and colleges at a national level. The National Cadet Corps Act was accepted by the Governor General and on 15 July 1948 the National Cadet Corps came into existence.
The NCC is a responsive, learning and continuously evolving organization. Its activity is guided by certain core values that we endeavour to instill among all ranks of the NCC. These include the following:
(a) A sense of patriotic commitment to encourage cadets to contribute to national development.
(b) Respect for diversities in religion, language, culture, ethnicity, life style and habitat to instill a sense of National unity and social cohesion.
(c) Abiding commitment to learn and adhere to the norms and values enshrined in the Indian Constitution.
(d) Understanding the value of a just and impartial exercise of authority.
(e) Ability to participate in community development and other social programme.
(f) A healthy life style free of substance abuse and other unhealthy practices.
(g) Sensitivity to the needs of poor and socially disadvantaged fellow citizens.
(h) Inculcating habits of restraint and self-awareness.
(j) Understanding the values of honesty, truthfulness, self-sacrifice, perseverance and hard work.
