The Indian Parliament passed the National Cadet Corps Act in 1948, thus creating the National Cadet Corps (NCC). The motto of the NCC is Unity and Discipline. The Aims of the National Cadet Corps are;

  • To develop qualities of character, courage, comradeship, discipline, leadership, secular out look, spirit of adventure and sportsmanship and the ideals of selfless service among the youth to make them useful citizens.

To create a human resource of organised, trained and activated youth, to provide leadership in all walks of life including the Armed Forces and always available for the service of the nation. The NCC has two active army subunits functioning in the College. Being the single largest youth organization in the world, NCC provides the cadets with ample opportunities to enhance their character, leadership, initiative, drive and comradeship amongst the youth. The wide array of activities undertaken by the NCC includes basic training sessions in first-aid, drill, communication, map reading and weapon training. Advanced training in mountaineering, rock climbing, Para jumping and cycling offer the cadets exciting vistas to quench their thirst for adventure. Apart from building sense of patriotism and a social outlook, it also moulds the cadets into able and smart citizens of tomorrow. Students are enrolled after a selection procedure. The National Cadet Corps of St Michael’s College has an overall strength of 160 cadets under senior division (Boys) and 50 cadets under senior division (Girls).


The NCC is open to all regular students of schools and colleges on a voluntary basis. The officers and cadets have no liability for active military service. It has been divided into four divisions (they are not similar to the Army divisions). The first two divisions are; the Senior Division for college boys and the Junior Division for school boys. The college cadets and the school cadets are trained differently. A single battalion of the NCC, can have companies of the Senior Division and troops of the Junior Division.
