The NCC aims at developing character, comradeship, discipline, a secular outlook and a sporting spirit, all of which are critical elements of a child’s education.
The junior wing (JD and JW) cadets of the NCC receive two years of training and an 'A' certificate upon completion of the course. Training components include regular parades, manoeuvres, and physical exercises. In addition, they are instructed in the use of weapons, map reading, fieldcraft, battle craft, etc. Cadets are required to attend at least one annual training camp (ATC) organised by the unit (2 CHDBNNCC). Qualified NCC cadets are given preference when applying to schools, colleges, and many government positions, including the defence forces.
