NCC Directorate Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh, in its relentless efforts, achieved another milestone in the incorporation of NCC as General Elective Credit Course under the Choice Based Credit System in all constituent colleges of the University of Ladakh get final go-ahead of the Vice-Chancellor Chewang Phunchok.
The notification on the subject issued by the University of Ladakh on July 07, 2021, is based on the guidelines issued by the University Grants Commission.
NCC General Elective Credit Course
As had been earlier informed that NCC as a Credit Course is designed with an intent to transform NCC training into a curricular activity from an extracurricular activity, thereby providing academic credits to students undergoing NCC training.
Syllabus of NCC adopted by the University of Ladakh for Senior Division will be covered in 300 periods over a three-year duration with six semesters plus two camps of 10 days each.
The move is in consonance with the National Education Policy 2020 where students can select their choice of subjects rather than being confined to only those being offered by the institutions.
This makes learning holistic and skill-oriented. On the successful completion of the course, students are awarded credit points which will enable them to qualify for their respective degrees.
It is pertinent to mention that in the UT of Jammu and Kashmir, Central University of Jammu and University of Kashmir have already incorporated NCC as General Elective Credit Course under the Choice Based Credit System in their curriculum.
