Under Exercise NCC Yogdan, around 2,000 NCC volunteer cadets have joined the fight against Coronavirus since 1st April.
These cadets are helping civil administration, Defence and Police personnel in 12 states and Union Territories. Requests have come in from states to requisition NCC cadets for various tasks. Around 50,000 cadets have so far volunteered to contribute in Exercise NCC Yogdan.
The state machinery is ensuring that all the cadets are provided with proper safety equipment like masks, gloves, precautionary other measures and during their deployment. They are not being employed in areas which are sealed or earmarked as hotspots by the respective state governments.
