NDA, Pune

National Defence Academy is a premier joint training Institution and center of excellence for producing junior leaders, for the Indian armed forces, and armed forces of friendly foreign countries. The training entails equipping the cadets with mental, moral and physical attributes required to cope with the challenges of the future battle field with the aim of leading troops to victory in conventional, non-conventional and asymmetrical conflicts.

NDA imparts training to young men, who choose the Armed Forces as their vocation. They are given an intensive education in Science, Technology, Arts and Military subjects. At the end of their three-year course, which is split into six terms, a cadet is awarded a Bachelor's Degree from the Jawaharlal Nehru University. While a cadet is being prepared intellectually to face the forthcoming challenges of high technology on tomorrow's battle-field, he is also physically and mentally toughened by a rigorous regimen of physical conditioning which includes drill, swimming, horse-riding and the full gamut of games and sporting activities. In the three years at the Academy, he is transformed from a cadet into a potential officer and a gentleman.

On successful completion of the three-year course, Army cadets proceed to the Indian Military Academy at Dehradun, Naval cadets to Indian Naval Academy at Ezhimala and Air Force cadets to the Air Force Academy at Hyderabad. After completion of one year of training at their respective academies, they are commissioned as officers into respective services.

The Academy also trains cadets from friendly foreign countries who take advantage of their training in the NDA to become military leaders in their own countries.
