Defence Secretary Dr Ajay Kumar has launched Directorate General National Cadet Corps (NCC) Mobile Training App Version 2.0. The app will assist in conducting countrywide online training to NCC cadets during the COVID-19 pandemic conditions. It is aimed at providing NCC-related basic information and entire training material (syllabus, précis, training videos, FAQs) on one platform. It provides the NCC cadets easy access to training material and assists in carrying out training during the pandemic. 

Speaking on the occasion, the Defence Secretary congratulated NCC for continuing to impart training to its cadets through online mode, in line with COVID-19 protocols. He said the NCC Training App Version 2.0 will be useful to the cadets in digital learning, overcoming the difficulties posed by COVID-19 restrictions on physical contact. Using this app, the cadets will be able to attend online training, appear in certification exams and prevent loss of the academic year. 

Dr Ajay Kumar termed digital technology as a lifeline in these COVID-19 times, stating that now it is a way of life and way of training for NCC cadets. He listed out various steps taken by the ministry to impart training to cadets through digital means, including the increase in the number of different types of simulators in all NCC directorates. He added that soon NCC cadets will be imparted training on satellite imagery and GIS-based mapping. Dr Ajay Kumar further said Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) for uniforms will soon be made available wherein uniform allowances will be directly transferred to the bank accounts of the cadets.
