Regular camps are organized at the Battalion level. The students are trained to develop leadership, character, sportsmanship, confidence and to create a force of trained and disciplined youth which could be utilized for the nation in case of an emergency.
“ELITE CLUB” was formed in 2007, whose membership is from those students who have procured jobs for themselves. They may have been selected either at “On campus” or “Off campus” recruitment or have obtained from any other sources. The purpose of this club is to initiate an attitude of cordial relationship with junior and senior students. They become members of the club when they receive the appointment letters from their employer.
They should willingly give a talk to students about their performance and their interview experience. They should serve as guide to their fellow student's community.
A directory which contains all relevant information will be published for these students. A grand get-together in formal clothing is organized for these Elite members and a group photographs is taken and given to individual member as a souvenir.
