The National Cadet Corps (NCC), is the Indian Miltary Cadets Corps with its Head Quarter at New Delhi. It is the largest uniformed youth organization of the world established in 1948 by the National Cadet Corps Act, 1948 under the Ministry of Defence (MOD). It is open to school and college students on voluntary basis. The cadets are given basic military training in small arms and parades. The officers and cadets have no liability for active military service once they complete their course but are given preference over normal candidates during selection based on the achievements in the corps. Its motto is 'UNITY AND DISCIPLINE' which was adopted on 23rd December, 1957 and is engaged in grooming the youth of the country into disciplined and patriotic citizens.
The aims of NCC as approved by the Ministry of Defence are as under:
- To develop character, comradeship, discipline, leadership, secular outlook, spirit of adventure, sportsmanship and ideals of selfless service among the youth of the country
- To create a human resource of organised, trained and motivated youth, to provide leadership in all walks of life and always be available for the service to the nation
- To provide a suitable environment to motivate the youth to take up a career in the Armed Forces.
Cardinal Principles of Discipline:
- Obey with a smile
- Be punctual
- Work hard and without fuss
- Make no excuse and tell no lies
“We the cadets of the national cadet corps, do solemnly pledge that we shall always uphold the unity of India. We resolve to be disciplined and responsible citizens of our nation. We shall undertake positive community service in the spirit of selflessness and concern for our fellow beings”
The NCC flag for various units was first introduced in 1951. The flag was of same pattern, colour and size as was used by various regiments of the Army. The only difference was that it had the NCC badge and unit designation placed in the centre. Later on it was felt that the flag should be in keeping with the inter-service character of the Corps. In 1954 the existing tricolour flag was introduced. The three colours in the flag depict the three services of the Corps, red for the Army, deep blue for the Navy & light blue for the Air Force. The letters NCC & the NCC crest in gold in the middle of the flag encircled by a wreath of lotus, give the flag a colorful look & a distinct identity.
