Brig HMS Chatwal (NCC Group Headquarters, Jalandhar) was present as the Chief Guest of the ceremony. He congratulated the cadets and wished that they would join the Armed Forces through NCC special entry scheme soon.

Brig HMS Chatwaal, while addressing the cadets gave information about Indian Army. He said the holder of C certificate enjoyed priority in exams such as NDA and CDS, as compared to ordinary applicants. He also said B and C certificates provided an edge to the cadets in such exams.

He said for the NCC cadets, there are separate vacancies in the army. Apart from these, the hard work of the players has significance in Indian Army. The most of the work for cadets is done by the C Certificate.

Throwing more light on the importance of the NCC-C certificate, Brig Chatwaal said, “If you have a C certificate of NCC, you can get a discount for higher studies in Indian universities and institutions.”
