About 2 Kar Engr Coy NCC
2 Kar Engr Coy NCC Unit, also called as NCC-NITK unit, has been functional for quite a long period of time. It was almost started in parallel with the institute. NCC welcomes you to a new world of patriotism, discipline, adventure, courage and fun. But it is important to remember that becoming a good NCC cadet is not an easy task. A lot of hard work and dedication is required to achieve such a goal. Here, in NCC, we teach you to be a good leader, to be a decision maker, to be a good team member, to be a disciplined citizen. NCC has very close associations with the armed forces. Ours is the ARMY wing of NCC.
Enrolment into NCC, starts, as soon as you enter into the college in the first year itself. A cadet has to be in NCC for 3 years in order to get his/her B-certificate and C-certificate. Cadets will be given free uniform, shoes and other dress materials by NCC and cadets have to maintain the same till they complete their training. As per the new policy, Cadets are awarded B-certificate, after they complete their second-year training, followed by certificate examination and C-certificate exam in their third-year training, followed by certificate examination. Exam includes both practical and theory papers. They also need to undergo at least one camp of 10 days duration, each, prior to their respective examinations. C-certificate holds very special importance, be it in PLACEMENTS or any other aspect. Cadets will have to attend the NCC classes regularly on Saturday mornings. Twice in a year there will be Firing drill. In the class, cadets are taught interesting subjects like map reading, various types of Rifles, weapon training, Mines etc. After this, there will be regular parade in which cadets are taught marching skills. Discipline is given highest priority. That is what distinguishes NCC cadet from other students. Cadets voluntarily participate in various social service activities like Swachh Bharath, coastal cleaning, disaster management, blood donation camps etc. Cadets actively participate in Independence Day and Republic Day Parades on 15th August and 26th January, respectively.
