Actions taken to improve the standard of training

1. Optimum utilization of PI Staff for training.
2. Greater involvement of Officers, WTLO’s and ANO’s.
3. Deficiencies in training aids will be made up expeditiously.


Cadets must be made to understand the aim and purpose of teaching drill, so that they are suitably motivated and do not take it as “fatigue”. Emphasis will be laid on correct bearing, marching, saluting and arms drill. Inter-squad competitions may be organized to create interest.

Weapon Training

Cadets generally take keen interest in weapon training and firing. Units must liaison with nearby Service and Para-Military Units to ensure that all Cadets get an opportunity to fire their authorized ammunition. Use of firing simulators may be made to optimize training efforts where possible.

Adventure Training

Adventure activities have been incorporated in NCC training with the aim of inculcating and strengthening leadership traits amongst the cadets. These activities in NCC can be broadly divided into the following.
1. Land based – Mountaineering, Rock Climbing and Trekking.
2. Water based – Sailing Expedition, White Water Rafting, Scuba Diving and River Crossing.
3. Air based – Parasailing.
