Takeaways of being an NCC cadet

  1. NCC is a highly reputed body which is also a second line of defence. In India, many youngsters are trained in line with defence in case the need arises. If young students want to make it their career option, then being a NCC cadet holds a lot of weight. As they are directly associated with the ministry of defence.

NCC helps cadets to improve their overall personality by teaching them leadership qualities, discipline, honesty,  working in a team, time management, to have high self-confidence, being physically fit, service before self, social service, and responsibility of service towards motherland and to be a responsible citizen of India.
  3. Since NCC camps are held all over India therefore there is training in a various parts of the country, hence students get an opportunity of visit new places and learn the art of independence. They are required to use their social skills and their senses to get to know new places and adapt to the varying environment. Other than just social skills they also get to learn about the history and art of the new place.
  4. Under the regime of exchange programme, there are a few selected students who get an opportunity to visit other countries and learn various things which are practised in other nations and exchange experiences with cadets who happen to come to India from foreign lands
