About the Subject

  • The introduction of  ‘NCC Studies’ as an optional subject for the Foundation Course was started because apart from NCC regular Training syllabus, it has social relevance in the Indian milieu and has emphasized the overall development of personality.
  • Subject's syllabus includes:-National Integration, Drill, adventure training, environmental awareness, personality development, leadership, and weapon training. Beneficiary the point to be noted here is that all the students will get an opportunity to select credits of their own choice thus making a humble beginning of the ‘choice-based credit system’ in its true sense the facility of ‘credit transfer’.
