Mumbai: After a gap of 18 years, Maharashtra will be hosting an all India National Cadet Corps (NCC) camp with around 650 cadets from across the country participating in the event, a defence official said today.

"This is the most prestigious camp with different themes for the cadets to exhibit their intrinsic talents and qualities," Colonel M K Joshi said.

The 12-day 'National Integration and Solidarity' camp, began last week and is hosted by N G Acharya & D K Marathe College of Arts, Science and Commerce.

"The themes of the camp include motivation, culture, and social service, tourism and also highlight a bright career for them ahead in Army. All these were meant to inculcate values," Joshi, who is the Group Commander, said.

The cadets are participating in various competitions to promote national integrity, he said, adding demonstrations were held by experts from National Disaster Response Force and Mumbai fire Brigade.

"We also engaged Western India Automobile Association to talk about drunken driving.

"The camp being held in Mumbai, we want to introduce the students also to some Bollywood culture. We will take them to R K Studio in Chembur and try to get some actors to interact with them," Joshi said.
