The University of Jammu has issued a notification for the inclusion of NCC as a “general elective course with credit”.
Recognizing the importance of NCC in the education of the country’s youth, the University of Jammu issued a notice to incorporate NCC as a “general elective course” under the choice-based credit system. This is in line with the 2020 NEP of the next academic session 2021-2022 of the University, with the objective of harnessing the full potential of CNC’s capacity in youth development.
What is the structure of the course?
NCC as a Credited Course is designed with the aim of turning NCC training into a curricular activity based on extracurricular activities, thereby providing academic credits to students undergoing NCC training.
The NCC curriculum adopted by the University of Jammu for the main division / wing will be covered in 300 lectures over a period of three years, in addition to two camps of 10 days each to become eligible to appear in the NCC ‘B ‘and’ C ‘certificate exams.
NCC cadets will certainly take advantage of this opportunity for better career prospects.
How did NCC become a general elective credit course?
This initiative is the result of a series of meetings held between Professor Manoj Kumar Dhar, Vice Chancellor of the University of Jammu and Major General Ranjan Mahajan, ADG NCC Directorate JK&L and other members of the committee on the topic.
Major General Ranjan Mahajan, ADG, expressed his gratitude to the VC of Jammu University on the issue of said notification.
