New Delhi, April 11 (IANS) The National Cadet Corps (NCC) will soon redefine its training philosophy to provide its cadets skills needed to face challenges of the new millennium.
To thrash out concepts relating to cadet training, the NCC is organising a day-long seminar here, according to the defence ministry.
Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal and Minister of State for Defence M.M. Pallam Raju will take part.

The seminar is a sequel to the ongoing exercise within the NCC to refine the training philosophy to make it more contemporary and relevant.
