Ever since offline classes were started after relaxation with Covid 19 SOP, NCC of this College unit also began its regular drill classes twice a week. Cadets are taught basic drills and discipline. Uniforms and boots are supplied from the headquarters to each cadet. A light refreshment also followed every classes.
Since the pandemic obstructs most of activities and also due to this College NCC being in its initial stages, not much of activities could have been reported. However, the following activities are carried out so far:
- CATC (Combine Annual Training Camp) was attended by 11 Cadets at Tanhril: Aizawl between 8th -17th Dec, 2021.

The College NCC is open for any interested students, especially, who have an interest in making a career in army and allied discipline. However, the seat for cadetship as of now is limited as the Headquarters could provide only for 10 SD & 10 SW in every batch. In the beginning of an academic season i.e July, an admission is sought for a new batch and students could avail membership by obtaining and submitting necessary forms and documents from the college NCC Office.
The ‘Aims’ of the NCC laid out in 1988 have stood the test of time and continue to meet the requirements expected of it in the current socio–economic scenario of the country. The NCC aims at developing character, comradeship, discipline, a secular outlook, the spirit of adventure and ideals of selfless service amongst young citizens. Further, it aims at creating a pool of organized, trained and motivated youth with leadership qualities in all walks of life, who will serve the Nation regardless of which career they choose. Needless to say, the NCC also provides an environment conducive to motivating young Indians to join the armed forces.
- To convert youth into disciplined and patriotic citizens.
- To inculcate the ideals of discipline, character development, brotherhood, spirit of adventure and selfless service amongst the young citizens.
- To inculcate leadership qualities in the youth so that they can be successful in their life no matter what career they choose.

NCC is one of the best platforms to sharpen life skills and serve the nation in all dimensions.
NCC has been started mainly for school and college students. Those candidates who take admission in NCC are given training by the Navy, Air Force and Army.
After India got independence in 1947, there was a great shortage of soldiers in India and to overcome this shortcoming, Pandit Hriday Nath Kunzru ji, presenting his suggestion, asked for the creation of a national-level military student body in the country, a few months later, on 16 April 1948, the National Cadet Corps was established.
