The Army Wing of NCC was started in our college in June 2010 with 52 cadets as a platoon under 22 Kerala battalion, Eloor. In 2010-11, we selected 25 cadets (17 SD and 8 SW), out of which one cadet passed the ‘C’ Certificate exam and 5 cadets cleared their ‘B’ certificate exam. In 2011-12, we selected 27 cadets (17 SD and 10 SW). At present, we have 52 cadets, whose selfless service and dedication have been a source of inspiration.
