Jalandhar:  In order to impart collective training to all NCC cadets of its battalion, the 8 Punjab battalion is conducting ten-day annual training camp (ATC) at Lovely Professional University campus. More than 500 Senior-Junior Division (SD/JD) & Senior-Junior Wing (SW/JW) NCC cadets from 28 schools and colleges are attending the training camp. Visualizing the mammoth design of the camp, the battalion preferred LPU for its vast infrastructure and support to have high-end conduction of the camp. Under the training, NCC cadets are presently going through various physical and mental exercises. The training is mainly for different soldier-skills including hard drill, marching, map reading, rifle operating, setting-up ambush, emergency duties. In addition, cadets are being prepared to be good citizens through social activities of awareness and awakening, including blood donation, national integration, rural- development projects like MNREGA, environment protection and many more. The camp is going to conclude on 2nd August 2014.


Camp Commandant Colonel Jarnail Singh informed: “The aim of the camp is to impart collective training to enable cadets to learn how to live together and cultivate spirit of comradeship. This is also to provide cadets experience for team-work, adventure, hardship to make them understand the value of self discipline and integrity.  Camp will also help cadets for character building, leadership inculcation, instilling of dignity of labour and more. Above all, the camp will make the cadets eligible for prestigious NCC certificates ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ Examination.”

LPU Director General Er HR Singla says: “We are happy to see the massive conduction of the training for NCC cadets at the university campus. We have provided all needed support to the NCC officers for smooth conduction of the camp. We are further pleased to note that the vastness of the campus is completely serving the purpose of the camp. In fact, considering the importance of such camps and activities meant for overall development of the students, we are ever-ready to serve the society. I expect NCC cadets will surely be able to serve the country in a better way in the days to come.”

On the conclusive day of the camp, the winners of various competitions held during training will receive prizes. Deputy Camp commandant Col BS Ghotra, Sub Major Prem Singh and other ranks of the 8 Punjab Battalion are assisting to train students for different skills.
