Raksha Mantri launches NCC Training App



Raksha Mantri launches NCC Training App here today. The App will assist in conducting countrywide online training of NCC cadets. In view of the restrictions imposed by COVID-19, training of NCC cadets has been affected adversely as it is mostly contact-based training. Since schools/colleges are not likely to open in the near future, a need was felt that training to NCC cadets should be imparted utilising the digital medium. Raksha Mantri launches NCC Training App and also interacted with the NCC cadets via video conferencing during the launch of the App and also answered their questions.  He wished them success and motivated them to excel in all spheres of life.

In his address to the NCC Cadets, Raksha Mantri said the app will be useful
to them in digital learning and overcoming the difficulties posed by
COVID-19 due to restrictions on direct physical interactions. But if one
moves ahead with determination and self-confidence, he or she would be able
to clear all hurdles and achieve success, he added. Shri Rajnath Singh
praised the contribution of more than one lakh NCC Cadets who supported the
frontline Corona warriors by executing various tasks in the fight against
the pandemic. He said NCC imparts values of unity, discipline, service to
the nation and several NCC cadets rose to become great personalities such
as Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, Air Marshal Arjan Singh, sports
personality Anjali Bhagwat, former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj
and former Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar. In addition, Raksha Mantri
himself was an NCC Cadet.

The DGNCC Mobile Training App aims at providing NCC cadets entire
training material (syllabus, précis, training videos and frequently asked
questions) on one platform. The App has been made interactive by including
a query option. By using this option, a cadet can post his question related
to the training syllabus and the same will be answered by a panel of
qualified instructors.

This App will certainly be a positive step towards the automation of NCC
training, in line with Digital India vision of Prime Minister Shri Narendra
Modi and will go a long way in assisting the NCC cadets in easier access to
training material in these testing times of pandemic.

Defence Secretary Dr Ajay Kumar, Director General NCC Lt General Rajeev
Chopra and other senior civil and military officials of the Ministry were
also present on the occasion.
