With an aim for raising a second line of defence and to create a large pool of trained youth available for Armed Forces during the First World War, University Corps was conceptualized by the British Government. In India, NCC was raised with an aim of grooming both the boys and the girls, nurture them and direct their energy towards nation building by making them responsible citizens.
After independence, the present day NCC formally came into existence on 15 July 1948 through XXXI Act of Parliament. The Girls Division of the NCC was raised in July 1949. On 01 April 1950, Air Wing was raised, with one Air squadron each at Bombay and Kolkata. The Naval Wing of the NCC was raised in July 1952, thus representing all three services in the Corps.
Today the NCC has an enrolled strength of more than 13 Lakh cadets and consists of two divisions of all the three Services, i.e., the Senior Division / Senior Wing for boys/girls from colleges and the Junior Division / Junior Wing for boys/girls from schools.
