The National Cadet Corps (NCC) will now be inducted as an extra-curricular activity across the country and at least 91 universities across the country have adopted it as General Elective Credit Course (GECC) under the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS).

The move is a result of a letter from the University Grants Commission (UGC) to Vice-Chancellors of all universities. UGC, on April 15, forwarded for consideration to all vice-chancellors of universities across India a proposal of the Directorate General, National Cadet Corps (NCC), aimed at including NCC as an elective subject. NCC syllabus for B and C certificates has been designed as per the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) of National Education Policy 2020 which grants 24 credit points covering six semesters.

The UGC’s communication was in line with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. Efforts are being made by NCC Group HQ Shillong, for the implementation of NCC as an elective subject in colleges affiliated with NEHU. On successful completion of the course, students are awarded credit points which will enable them to qualify for their respective degrees. Efforts are being made by NCC Group HQ Shillong, for implementation of NCC as an elective subject in colleges affiliated with NEHU. Necessary communication in this regard has already been established with NEHU.

The university has been positive towards the proposal and is considering it. There are several advantages linked with the proposal that would benefit the students immensely. In addition to the development of discipline, leadership qualities, a strong character and a spirit of adventure, students opting for the subject would get opportunities to take part in outdoor camps and adventure activities and at the same time earn credits for their course. It would also improve their career prospects as students with NCC background are considered as assets by government and corporate organisations.
