University Corps (UC)
The NCC has its genesis in the University Corps (UC) which was created under the Indian Defence Act, 1917, with the object to make up the shortages of the Army.
University Training Corps (UTC)
In 1920, when the Indian Territorial Act was passed, the University Corps was replaced by the University Training Corps (UTC).
University Officers Training Corps (UOTC)
In 1942, the UTC was renamed as the University Officers’ Training Corps (UOTC).
The need to create a youth organization at National level to train the young boys and girls to be better citizens and future leaders of our country in all walks 3 of life, including defence forces, was rightly realized by our leaders. A Committee under Pandit HN Kunzru was set up in 1946 at the behest of our first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. Recommendations of this Committee paved the way for the formation of NCC. Thus, the National Cadet Corps (NCC) came into existence on 15 July 1948 under the National Cadet Corps Act (No.XXXI of 1948) enacted by the Parliament. In nutshell, the NCC of Independent India was inaugurated on 15 July 1948. The enrolment was open to both school and college/university students. Initially, the Senior Division (Boys in College/ University) and Junior Division (Boys in School) were raised.
In 1949, the Girls Division was raised in order to give equal opportunities to school and college going girls.
The NCC was given an inter-service image in 1950 when the Air Wing was added, followed by the Naval Wing in 1952. Same year, the NCC curriculum was extended to include community development/social service activities as a part of the NCC syllabus at the behest of Late Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru who took keen interest in the growth of the NCC.
Following the Chinese Aggression, to meet the requirement of the Nation, the NCC training was made compulsory in 1963.
However, on the resistance of students against compulsory NCC training and also on the suggestions of some Vice Chancellors in 1968, the Corps was again made voluntary.
The Corps which started in a small way with Cadet Strength of 1.67 lakh has now grown to more than 13 lakh. The network of 774 NCC units is spread all over the country through 4880 Colleges and 7783 Schools.
The NCC was started in our institution with strength of 160 cadets in 1998.Sri TALARI BALAJI is the Associate NCC Officer (ANO) for this 193/E-Coy Palamaner unit.
