NCC as core subject: Decision hailed

Tribune News Service

Amritsar, May 3

The decision to include NCC as a General Elective Credit Course in Universities by UGC has been welcomed by the NCC units across the state. Brigadier Rohit Kumar, NCC Group Commander, Amritsar, has hailed the move and said that concerted efforts will be made for its implementation.

According to UGC’s directions, NCC will now be a part of the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) as envisioned in the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. All students who enroll for NCC, including those under Border/ Coastal expansion scheme, will benefit immensely by obtaining academic credits for NCC training, in addition to acquiring NCC ‘B’/ ‘C’ certificates, thus enhancing their employment opportunities.

The UGC has issued an advisory to the Vice-Chancellors of all universities to include NCC training as General Elective Credit Course. The proposal, which is planned for implementation from the forthcoming academic session, will have far reaching ramifications and aligns with the NEP 2020, wherein students can select their choice of subjects rather than being confined to only those being offered by the institutions.

The NCC syllabus for B and C Certificates are designed as per the CBCS of NEP 2020, which grants twenty-four credit points covering six semesters, out of which a student can accrue four credits in the first two semesters and ten credits in the third and fourth semester, and similarly ten credits in the fifth and sixth semester.

Brigadier Rohit Kumar said that NCC as a Credit Course is designed with an intent to transform training into a curricular activity from an extra-curricular thereby providing academic credits to students undergoing NCC training along with other attended advantages to the cadets in the college/ university.
