National Cadet Corps is a Tri-Services Organization, comprising the Army, Navy and Air Force, engaged in grooming the youth of the country into disciplined and patriotic citizens. The origin of NCC can be traced back to the ‘University Corps’, which was created under the Indian Defence Act 1917, with the object to make up 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). The aim was to raise the status of the UTC and make it more attractive to the youth.The UTC Officers and cadets dressed like the army. It was a significant step towards the Indianisation of armed forces.
In 1942, the UTC was re-christened as the ‘University Officers Training Corps’. During the independence movement, the leaders of our nation had realised the need to create a national level youth organisation, to train and groom young boys as responsible citizens and future leaders of our great country in all walks of life, including the defence forces. Consequently, a committee under Shri NH Kunzru was set up in 1946 on the directives of the first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, to consider the establishment of a Nationwide cadet Corps. The recommendations of the committee paved the way for the National Cadet Corps, which was born through an Act of Parliament in 1948.

MOTTO OF NCC
The motto of NCC is “Unity and Discipline”. ‘Unity’ implies our basic oneness, the brotherhood of all the Indian people regardless of their caste, colour or creed.
