KL Deemed to be University Celebrates NCC Cadets National level Achievements

KL NCC cadets achievementsFebruary 2024: KL Deemed to be University proudly celebrates the accomplishments of its National Cadet Corps (NCC) cadets, who have always demonstrated a strong spirit of patriotism and leadership. This spirit is not only encouraged but also actively nurtured through NCC activities. Emphasizing the importance of holistic development and national service, the university provides extensive opportunities for students to participate in NCC activities. Both students and faculty have responded with exceptional performances, receiving various national accolades.

Recently, Komal, a second-year B.Tech student, represented the 22(A) Andhra Battalion of NCC Cadets at the Republic Day Parade in Delhi on January 26, 2024, and participated in both the “Prime Minister’s Rally” and the prestigious “Rajpath” event. These events are highly selective and notable, underscoring that not all cadets attending could participate. Komal’s involvement in this national event, where only two cadets from each of the 27 states were selected, illustrates how the university and its faculty members ensure a high level of discipline and involvement.

The NCC Officer of 22(A) Battalion Lieutenant V. Mounika, an NCC officer, in the CSE Department, has been honored with the Défense Secretary Commendation Award by the Défense Ministry for her exceptional services within the National Cadet Corps (NCC). It is noteworthy to mention that this prestigious award stands as the sole recognition from the AP&T state, making Lieutenant V. Mounika’s achievement even more remarkable. Congratulations on this singular and well-deserved acknowledgment.

Dr. G. P. Saradhi Varma, Vice-Chancellor of KL Deemed to be University, expressed his delight over these achievements, stating, “The success of our students and faculty in the National Cadet Corps is a source of immense pride for us. The awards and recognitions our cadets have received are indicative of their commitment to excellence, discipline, and the rigorous training they have undergone. It’s a testament to their ability to think quickly, adapt, and excel under pressure. Under the guidance of faculty members and Lieutenant V. Mounika of the 22(A) Battalion, as well as Lieutenant A. Pavani of the 10th Andhra NCC Battalion, students are trained and disciplined to elevate to the next level. Our commitment at the University goes beyond academic excellence; we aim to encourage holistic development, ensuring our students are well-prepared to contribute meaningfully to society and the nation.”

Senior Under Officer Sri Sai Priya’s from 22(A) Battalion journey from student to distinguished NCC cadet further exemplifies the university’s commitment to promoting leadership and talent. After a series of selection camps, she represented the Andhra Pradesh and Telangana directorate at the Republic Day Camp 2021 in Delhi, achieving first place among all 17 directorates in India. Her participation in the “Prime Minister’s Rally” and representation of India in Bangladesh during their victory day celebration as part of the International Youth Exchange Program are milestones in her NCC career.

At the eighth mass annual training camp of the 10th Andhra Girls’ NCC Battalion, held at the Perecharla Gunshot Range, Guntur district, the university’s students have once again presented their excellence and dedication by securing top positions and accolades across various competitive and cultural arenas. Yashwini, a second-year B.Tech student and a Junior Under Officer in the Tenth Andhra Girls Battalion NCC, received the prestigious NCC Commendation Appreciation Award from DG NCC Lt. Gen Gurbirphal Singh. Her exceptional performance in NCC programs and drill activities earned her this esteemed recognition. Pretto Rathore was honoured with the Best Cadet award. Shanmukhi, a diligent second-year Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Legislative Law (BA LLB) student, showcased her sharpshooting skills by securing the second prize in the 0.22 calibre gun firing section and won a gold medal in dance performance.

Under the guidance of the Dr. Ch. Hanumantha Rao, Dean of Student Affairs and the collective support of faculty and staff, the University cultivates a culture that emphasizes sports and personal growth.
