TThe primary source of the National Cadet Corps (NCC) is the University Corps, established by the Defence Act of 1917 to address the Army shortfall. The "University Training Corps" (UTC) took the place of the University Corps when the Indian Terrorism Act of 1920 was passed. The UTC became the University Officers Training Corps (UOTC) in 1942. Our predecessors correctly saw the necessity to raise up young men and women to be better citizens and future leaders of our wonderful nation in all spheres of life, including the armed forces.In 1946, our Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, ordered the formation of a committee led by Pandit HN Kunzru. The NCC was established on July 18, 1948, by the Ministry of Defense (MOD) under the NCC Act XXXVI of 1948.


"Unity and Discipline" is the NCC's motto, which was chosen on December 23, 1957. In living up to its motto, the NCC strives to be and is one of the greatest cohesive forces in the nation, bringing together the youth hailing from different parts of our country and molding them into united, secular, and disciplined citizens.
