The Central Board of Secondary Education will soon offer NCC training as an optional elective subject at class 11-12 level.

Students now can opt for the National Cadet Corps as one of the four elective subjects , also as an additional elective subject at the senior secondary stage in combination with any of the subjects which are already available in the scheme of studies of CBSE.

NCC though, has been introduced into many schools as a subject. The board's reason for introducing NCC is, according to its statement, to let the youth be open to the ideas of service to the nation and inculcate the qualities that are very needed in the defence services including diligence, perseverance and above of resilience and humility.
