The NCC was created as University Corps under the Indian Defence Act, 1917 with the objective to train students for the Army. In 1920, when the Indian Territorial Act was passed, the “University Corps” was replaced by the “University Training Corp[s” (UTC). In 1942, the UTC was renamed as the “University Officers Training Corps” (UOTC). In September 1946, a committee was set up under Kunzru for the establishment of a nation-wide youth organization. The “National Cadet Corps” (NCC) came into existence on 15th July 1948 under National Cadets Corps Act (No.XXXI of 1948) passed by the parliament. The Army NCC unit in Girls Division was introduced in 1949. Air force and Naval NCC Units followed soon in 1950 and 1952 respectively. This voluntary youth organization, which started with 20,000 cadets, is today probably the largest uniformed youth organization in the world with 13 lakh cadets (boys and girls). The NCC Head quarters are located in New Delhi. Control and co-ordination of the activities are exercised through 17 State Directorates. NCC Officers Training Academies are located at Kamptee for Male Officers and Gwalior for Women Officers.
