The National Cadet Corps (NCC) was formed on 15th July 1948 through an act of the Parliament of India, with ‘Unity and Discipline’ as its motto. It aims to develop qualities of character, courage, comradeship, discipline, leadership, secular outlook, spirit of adventure and sportsmanship and the ideals of selfless service among the youth of the country; so as to create a human resource of organized, trained and motivated youth to provide leadership in all walks of life including the Armed Forces and be always available for the service of the nation.
