The National Cadet Corps (NCC) will be introduced as an optional elective in all colleges in the State, Director General of NCC, AP Directorate, Air Commodore Suresh Badyal said on Saturday.

Interacting with the media after taking part in the 65 th NCC Day held here on Saturday, Mr. Badyal said the NCC is being offered as an optional subject in two institutions in Tenali, JMJ College for Women and VSR &NVR College, already and efforts are on to introduce the same in more institutions.

Mr. Badyal also revealed that the intake of girls in NCC has increased to 35,000 making them 30 per cent of the AP Directorate.

“We are trying to increase the number of cadets by opening new centres and increasing the capacity of the existing smaller centres,” he said.

More NCC centres mooted

The Directorate has received requests for opening the NCC Army, Navy and Girls centres from Anantapur and Nizamabad districts, and the requests were being examined, Mr. Badyal said. Consultations were being taken up with the government to include the NCC as an optional subject in Intermediate Board in line with the CBSE guidelines, he added. Rear Admiral K. Srinivas, Director, Defence Machineries, Design Establishments (DMDE) participated in the celebrations as the chief guest while M. Malakondaiah, Director of the AP Police Academy was the guest of honour.

Cadets from nine groups under the NCC AP Directorate braved the incessant drizzle and participated in a spectacular parade presented as part of the anniversary celebrations. The audience was also enthralled by their skills in tent pegging, horse show, band display, among others.

The highlight of the show was the platoon drill that cadets performed to enact an attack to capture an enemy post.

Rear Admiral Srinivas said that cadets’ resolve and determination can be gauged by the fact that they were not deterred by the rain.

“NCC is a voluntary service and fact that so many youngsters are opting to be part of this force speaks about their commitment. Society will be the final beneficiary of this commitment,” he said.
