INTRODUCTION

 

 

1.         The institutional training syllabus is in two parts, namely common and specialised. Common syllabus covers subjects common to Army JD/JW and SD/SW, where as specialised syllabus covers subjects pertaining to respective arm of Army.  In keeping with the changing times and needs of society the syllabus for both boys and girls has been made common with little variation in specialised subjects.  This will ensure smoother planning, coordination and implementation of syllabus at unit level.

(b)        Generate interest  in NCC training by including and laying emphasis on such aspects of institutional training which attract the young cadets into NCC and provide them an element of thrill and excitement together with this, training should also be planned and conducted in an innovative and interesting manner so as to convert ‘work into play’.

 

 

(c)        Making use of the institutional training to inculcate defence services work ethos which are characterised by hard work, sincerity of purpose, honesty, ideal of selfless service, dignity of labour, secular outlook, comradeship and spirit of adventure and sportsmanship.
