"National Cadet Corps" is considered to be the second line of defence for the country. Youthful, energetic, sincere & patriotic boys & girls come together and work as NCC cadets, with the motto, "Unity & Discipline".
On MIT campus, the activity of NCC was started in the year of 1995, with a minimal number of cadets. Within the span of next nine years, the troop has grown & developed into a huge family which has cadets belonging to three different wings of NCC. National cadet corps & allied social, adventure & cultural activities constitute special feature of this premier professional institution.
Training is rigorous & is conducted regularly; this includes weekly theory classes on service subjects, basic foot drill & weapon drill, adventure activities, water sports & aero-sports. Apart from this, social service & social exposure is an important aspect of training. With this in mind we started with the activity of blood donation on the campus. Another social service project is being carried out at 'CIPLA - Palliative Care & Training Centre". Troop members provide voluntary help throughout the year except during examination period.
So as to carry out all the above mentioned activities the total strength of the troop is divided into five committees. Every committee has around 20 members including a leader & two sub leaders. Here's a glimpse in to the five committees:
Blood Donation Committee:
The committee strives to educate the youth about utmost importance of blood donation & to motivate them to participate in all the activities related to blood donation.
This committee plans & implements a system for improvement in academic performance of troop members, interacts with parents in detail, regarding academics & other personnel aspects of their wards, helps the members through counselling sessions.
This committee apart from binding all other committees together also reflects true Indian spirit through its performances at CIPLA, our annual social gathering & other social occasions.
Aero sports & Water sports Committee:
Till date this committee has successfully organized & conducted variety of activities including trekking, water sports such as kayaking, sailing & rowing, ship modelling, aero sports such as gliding, paragliding, parasailing & aero-modelling.
This committee's primary concern is reaching maximum number of like minded people & making them aware about overall activities along with multi disciplinary approach of the troop. This helps a great deal in increasing strength of the troop & in maintaining cohesive atmosphere.
With such an efficient committee structure, activities are carried out with utmost consistency. Another most important feature of this structure is, seniors learn how to take care of the juniors & juniors learn how to respect seniors.
The troop comprises not only of cadets but also of VOLUNTEERS. If you have smartness, positive attitude & want to be creative, you are most welcome to join the troop.
