New Delhi: The Narendra Modi government has decided to rope in National Cadet Corps (NCC) volunteers aged 18 or above, to help the Indian civil infrastructure in the fight against the widening coronavirus outbreak.

The NCC has moved to help the civilian authorities by extending the services of its cadets under a programme called ‘Exercise NCC Yogdan’.

The NCC, which operates under the Ministry of Defence, is the largest uniformed youth organisation of the country with an approximate strength of 14 lakhs.

In a statement released Thursday, the NCC issued guidelines for temporary employment of its cadets to boost relief efforts and functioning of various agencies involved in battling the pandemic.

As of now, 25,000 cadets are being mobilised to provide necessary local assistance, said the statement.

The tasks envisaged for cadets include manning of helpline/call centres, distribution of relief materials/medicines/food/essential commodities, community assistance, data management and queue and traffic management.

However, the cadets should not be employed in handling of law and order situation or for active military duties or at hot spots, said the guidelines.

“Only Senior Division volunteer cadets above 18 years of age will be employed. They should be employed in small cohesive groups of eight to 20 under the supervision of Permanent Instructor Staff or/and an Associate NCC Officer,” added the statement.

As of today, India has reported over 1,830 cases of coronavirus infection, with a significant surge reported over the last three days.

How the cadets will be deployed

According to the statement, the state governments or district administrations will have to send the requisition for deployment of cadets through NCC’s state directorates.

Details will be coordinated at the Directorate or Group Headquarters or unit level with the state government or local civil authority.

Before the cadets are deployed for duty, ground conditions and laid down requirements are to be ensured, the guidelines said.

Since NCC’s inception, its cadets have contributed during natural calamities like floods, cyclone among other events.

  42. Dear Prime Minister,

    NCC did great work in the past for the nation whether it was Indo -pak war of 1965 & Indo -pak war of 1971 , NCC cdts were second line of defense .They organized camp to assist ordnance factories , supplying arms and ammunition to the front and also were used as patrol parties to capture enemy paratroopers . The NCC cdts also worked hard in front with the civil defense autorities and actively took part in rescue work and or natural calamities. Now time sir of course we will do anything for save our country .Again when the epidemic like Corona hits the nation,As an ex-NCC cadet and a responsible citizen of India, I want to volunteer to be part of the initiative to fight against it.

  43. yes ofcourse sir we will do our best for our country as soon as i permit to do so i will be there for all . but still my ANO not gave any information about this.

  44. Why not senior wing and junior wing? Everybody is trained equally then why can’t we turn out to be a help?

  45. NCC senior division was always used in the past during national calamities even in the past even during wars atleast in 1965 and 1971 when external emergency was declared. I have myself along my batch mates in Delhi have done duty in Police station assitng in night patrol. We were allowed to enter Cinema theaters etc for checking. I remember having inspected Regal, Rivoli etc. We to report to Tughluck Road PS for duty allotment. As usual this government in using the servuces NCC cadets. With several units spread across they could have been used for patrolling and locating suspects people. Considering age gorup they are unlikely to be vunrable CV.
