Aims and Objectives
- NCC :
The NCC movement in Rishikul Defence Academy has steadily gained momentum. Where children used to look at NCC with reluctance, today, they want to participate in its different programmes enthusiastically. They have realized that serious and regular attendance in NCC activities not only helps them acquire many important life-skills like endurance, self-help, team work, collaboration, communication, social responsibility and patriotism, but can also open doors to many career avenues. Good colleges give bonus points to candidates at the time of admission if they have had NCC experience; aspirants for the armed forces, if they have been awarded the NCC ‘C’ certificate, can bypass the UPSC examination and appear directly at the Service Selection Board interview and join the prestigious National Defence Academy; and, finally, NCC cadets can also benefit from the numerous scholarships that the NCC offers to deserving candidates. NCC provides the invaluable experience of camping, visiting new places, meeting new people, excursions to Air Force bases and other exciting places otherwise closed to the public. We hope these experiences will, one day, motivate our NCC boys to join the Army or Air Force or Navy, and to devote their lives to the service of our motherland. The Rishikul Defence Academy NCC programme is coordinated and supervised by a full-time qualified Associate NCC Officer.
