Retired IAS Anil Swarup to head committee formed to strengthen NCC, NSS


Government is seriously trying to address issues such as manpower deficiency in the National Cadet Corps (NCC) and National Service Scheme (NSS). It has decided to form a committee under the chairmanship of retaired IAS officer and former education secretary Anil Swarup. The committee would suggest ways to revamp and strengthen these institutions.

The Committee would look into issues like expansion, strengthening training infrastructure, rationalising resources, reducing manpower deficiency affecting NCC and NSS.

The committee will also have “suitable representations” from NCC and the Ministry of Human Resource and Development.
