KNOW MORE

“The victory in World War II was a triumph for the concept of the complete integration of the three dimensions of war – ground, sea and air, and, the great lesson for the future is the success depends on a complete integration of the Services.”

(General Douglas MacArthur)

In the post-Kargil scenario, the Kargil Review Committee (KRC) endorsed a scathing indictment of the lack of jointness in our Armed Forces wings. The criticality of jointmanship to national security was finally acknowledged and interlinked. NDA took lead in implementing the recommendation of KRC in letter and spirit. As a result, Joint Training Team was set up in Autumn Term 2007.

Joint training at the National Defence Academy focuses on inter-service cooperation for synchronization of all components of military power to achieve a common military aim. It is characterised by trust and confidence, mutual respect for each other’s capability, and healthy competition.

A cadet is welcomed in NDA by JTT through the ‘Orientation Capsule’ of approximately 60 days duration. During the capsule, he is mentally conditioned and physically toughened up to expeditiously adapt to the military way of life. Scientific means are used to condition the body of the cadet in a gradual manner starting with walking/ light jogging and thereafter graduating to upper body exercises, swimming, running and drill, ing, etc. During the capsule, all cadets are introduced to the basic nuances of swimming. Mess and social etiquette are taught and strengthened through Dinner and Guest nights.

The common aspects of the three services are covered in the curriculum of joint training. This includes weapon handling, map reading, military law, history and organization of each service, and analysis of military campaigns and operations.

The leadership qualities and personality of a cadet is developed through interactive classroom instructions, debates, public speaking competitions, seminars, and interactions with civil institutes, and organizations.

A cadet, after completion of the training at NDA, is apprehensive of the new challenges that his life in the Finishing Academy beholds for him. The Finishing School Capsule facilitates a smooth transformation of a cadet into an officer by exposing him to the finer aspects of life as an officer and a military leader.

JTT is involved with the grooming of a cadet from the first day till the penultimate day of this training. Ever since inception, efforts have been made to consistently improve him. JTT stands committed to achieving higher standards of joint training and grooming the future military commanders of the Indian Armed Forces who are fully capable of taking on the higher responsibilities in a joint warfare scenario.
