NCC Ranks And Insignia


NCC Ranks And Insignia. National Cadet Corps has shaped the lives of millions of the people of the country. It remains committed to producing vibrant disciplined citizens who are capable of taking our Nation to Great heights. The National Cadet Corps is headed by a Director General, an Army Officer of the rank of Lieutenant General, who is responsible for the functioning of the National Cadet Corps in the country through the National Cadet Corps Headquarters situated at Delhi.

However, many a times, we neglect the being of NCC as an organisation which trains the reserve soldiers of the country.

At the State Level, the country has been divided into 17 Directorates covering all States and Union Territories. Each of the State National Cadet Corps Directorate Headquarters controls two to fourteen Group Headquarters. While Directorates are commanded by Brigadiers or their equivalents, the Groups are commanded by Colonels or equivalents from the Air Force and the Navy, NCC Units are commanded by Major/Lieutenant Colonel or their equivalents.
