NCC is currently treated as an extracurricular activity in majority of schools and colleges across the country.  In keeping with the New Education Policy of the Union Government, NCC is now being offered as an Elective Credit Course under Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) with the objective of harnessing the full potential of NCC’s capacity in youth development and enlarging the student base taking up NCC training for Nation Building.
