    BJP will make army training compulsory: VK Singh - Hindustan Times
    What do you guys think?
    I think it's totally okay, a lot of countries do this, and even from a health perspective, it would help a lot of the plump thayirsaadam types get fit :D!

    If that works in Vietnam, China and Russia... why not in India?

    As China trains around 700'000 soldiers year after year, india should at least do more than what is done at present.

    Not conscription. Only training. You need not serve for a mandatory period, Unless it's a draft during a crisis,

    It would be a good opportunity to train. People also would be better trained to face natural calamities.

    Not very difficult to implement as many school have similar programs. Better than NCC, RSP or scouts and Social Service training we had in school. It wont be like a boot camp training, but it will give good training in survival techniques, physical training and discipline. Ex-army officers can be employed for this service in every school.

    Many school already have NCC, RSP and scouts training. It can start from there, and if successful can be turned into a law.

    Or even better helping others during natural calamities. Survivcal techniques learnt at an early age can help them in unforeseen future. You never know when these things come handy.

    They can instead make Scouts and NCC compulsory in schools and colleges. They can extend the NCC to provide infantry training for a year during the 11th std.

    Compulsory military training can mess things up because students may end up losing a year or two during college years and graduate late.

    Please RTI the Directorate general of NCC on the number of institutions in the waiting list for NCC ... it would be mind boggling.... in the positive sense..

    Do not misguide please...

    Those who are imparted military training like NCC have no reservationist liabilities...

    That way you would call all hunters in India the reservists..

    Conscription is compulsory military service (as against training)...

    NCC has undergone vast changes in syllabus and they are now teaching leadership, social responsibility, team work, disaster management, health and hygiene and many other utilitarian subjects...

    Many boards of educations and universities in India are on their way to recognise NCC as an alternative or elective academic subjects for the students...

    There is no requirements of that... Now, two year NCC syllabus for "C" certificate can be covered during three year degree course. One good camp to be attended by NCC Cadets is good enough to train them in the basics..


    It is very unfortunate that none of the commentator seems to have been a NCC cadet...
