The Indian Parliament passed the National Cadet Corps Act in 1948, thus creating the National Cadet Corps (NCC). The motto of the NCC is Unity and Discipline.
The National Cadet Corps have been created with the following objectives:
With the above objectives in mind, NMIT (Nitte Meenakshi Insititute of Technology) launched the NCC army technical company in the year 2004. The goals for launching NCC were to inculcate the national spirit and discipline among students. NCC of NMIT is attached to 1KAR Signal Regiment NCC, Bangalore-A Group, Karnataka and Goa Directorate.
To promote fitness and discipline among college students, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has directed Universities across the country to offer NCC as an Elective subject. NMIT is one of the first Institutions in the country to offer NCC as an elective subject starting in the academic year 2013-14.
The NCC activities are coordinated by Capt. Rajesh N., Associate Professor, Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering.
