History
The British government formed the University Corps (UC) in various universities of India in 1920. In 1923, this was renamed as University Training Corps (UTC). In 1928 an UTC company named 12 Dhaka Company was raised in Dhaka University. After independence from the British, this company was raised to a Battalion in 1950 and was renamed as University Officers Training Corps (UOTC). Subsequently, the UOTC programme was extended to Chittagong and Rajshahi Universities. In 1966, the programme was extended to few colleges with the name Junior Cadet Corps (JCC). The UOTC cadets took active part in the Liberation War of 1971 and a few of them laid down their lives that the BNCC proudly remember. After liberation, the activities of the UOTC continued as before. In 1976, the programme was extended to the schools with the name Bangladesh Cadet Corps (BCC). Later in 1979 united UOTC, JCC and BCC to form Bangladesh National Cadet Corps (BNCC). His vision in forming the BNCC was that the youth of the country would devote them selve in development works in peacetime and form the second line of defence forces of the country during emergency.
