Who are these NCC cadets?

They are mainly students above 18 years of age. Both boys and girls are doing this voluntarily and are not seeking any incentive or other reward.

They get proper training and given a briefing before being deployed.

They are the role models for the youth of the country as they are foregoing the comfort of their homes and are right in the front to help the government in its efforts to fight this deadly virus.

Also, according to officials, more NCC cadets are ready to volunteer if the civil administration requires them.

Since April 1, almost 2,000 cadets are already giving voluntary services in 12 states and Union Territories. And the numbers are increasing. More than 50,000 have volunteered so far.

Where ever they are working with the civil authorities they are provided with proper safety equipment like masks, gloves, etc during their deployment.

And most importantly they are under the supervision of Officers, Junior Commissioned Officers, PI staff and ANOs of NCC. This is done in an effort to ensure the safety of the cadets.
