About NDA and courses:
The National Defence Academy of India located in Khadakwasla, Pune, is a joint services academy where cadets of the three wings Army, Navy and Air Force are trained together before they go for their pre-commission training to their respective academies. It covers an area of roughly 8,300 acres (34 km2).
The academic part of the three-year course includes subjects typical of a University Degree (B.Sc., B.A., B.Sc. Comp Sc.) as well as basic training of fundamental military sciences. In the first two years, all cadets are trained on the tri-services and in the final year, the cadet is further trained on the service (Army, Air Force or Navy) that he was selected for. Cadets are trained for overall development, from academic training, military strategies, outdoor activities like para gliding, sailing, horsemanship, rock climbing, etc. to physical training, firing and other such activities. Overseeing all training and development activities of the cadets is the Academy Adjutant. The appointment is presently held by Lt Col KS Gill, SM** from the 1st battalion Maratha Light Infantry, a decorated officer. He had graduated from MIKE squadron of Number 4 Battalion.
On successful completion of the three-year course, the cadet is given a University Degree (affiliated to the JNU, New Delhi) and goes on to the training establishments of the Service he has opted for. Army cadets go to the IMA at Dehra Dun, Air Force cadets to the Air Force Academy at Hyderabad and the Naval cadets to training ships. Navy has the least number of vacancies (about 40) followed by Airforce (about 50), while the rest of the 300 odd seats are for the Army. Indian Army is the biggest and the oldest of the three branches of Indian Defence Services.
