SRINAGAR: The first annual training camp of the current training year of 3 J&K Battalion NCC Baramulla is being held at Uri from May 02 to 11 in which 355 cadets from 37 institutions of Baramulla, Bandipora and Kupwara are attending.
The aim of the camp is to impart basic training comprising drill, weapon training, map reading and also personality development and leadership qualities. It is indeed heartening to witness the cadets of remote far flung border areas take part in the camp enthusiastically, PRO (Defence) Srinagar said in a statement.
Brigadier Kuldeep Singh Kalsi, Group Commander Srinagar Group, visited Uri at the ATC camp site of 3 J&K NCC Battalion Baramulla on May 05. He was given an impressive Guard of Honour by the cadets followed by a formal briefing by the Commanding Officer. He later visited the training area and was shown practical classes being conducted by the instructors and the Associated NCC Officers. He also motivated the cadets on the firing range, leading from the front by firing the best shot. He even mentored them by giving them some fine tips.
He highlighted the benefits of joining NCC and inspired the cadets to take part in all the NCC related activities. He interacted with Commander 12 Infantry Brigade Uri and also visited the Kamaan Post on Line of Control. “The high spirited participation of these young cadets which is being well appreciated by all the educational institutions and the local population has indeed projected the image of NCC as a true instrument of nation building,” the PRO said.
