About National Defence Academy:

The National Defence Academy is an iconic institution and hallmark of global excellence in military education. Over the years, it has emerged as a unique military academy, attracting the best of youth from our nation and friendly foreign countries and transforming them into officers and gentlemen.

During the last six decades of its glorious existence, the National Defence Academy has grown in grace and grandeur.And from its portals have emerged ‘Leaders of Men’, who have demonstrated the essence of inter-services camaraderie and joint manship, thereby vindicating the faith and vision of its founding fathers. Apart from leaders of men, the alumni have proved to be great mountaineers, cosmonauts, sportsmen, researchers, creative writers, artists, corporate honchos, and, more recently, Olympic champions.

Their achievements are all-pervading and showcased in every echelon of our Armed Forces and civil society. The ‘Cradle’ has rocked the nascent youth and groomed them into ‘Leaders’ who have lived up to its ethos: ‘Seva Paramo Dharma’ (Service Before Self).

The objective of training, in essence, is to impart academic and technological training of the highest quality to equip cadets with appropriate qualifications as a foundation for their service careers. Conduct focused training to enable cadets to achieve the requisite physical and endurance standards with proficiency in troop games.

To inculcate in cadets the qualities of leadership, a desire for self-improvement, and a drive to excel in every sphere. Incorporate a culture of joint manship in training and promote the spirit of joint manship in thought, word, and deed. Conduct high-quality primary military and technical training to give cadets a strong foundation in their service careers.
