The Government of India started in 1925 a scheme of voluntary military training amongst the students and named it the University Training Corps (U.T.C). The designation was changed in 1943 to the University Officer’s Training Corps (U.O.T.C).

Consequent to the expansion of NCC activities across the nation, the “NCC Rifles” was created as an adjunct to the existing NCC organization. Under the new set up, a company had an authorized strength of 200 cadets with one office as Coy. Commander.
