They have been selected from a pool of 180 shortlisted cadets from seven NE states after a five-week-long special pre-Republic Day camp conducted at the NCC Academy here in Assam from 13 November to 17 December by the NCC group headquarters here, under the aegis of the NCC directorate, NER, according to a PIB (defence wing) release.
Interacting with the selected candidates, Maj Gen Ananta Bhuyan exhorted them to perform well in the forthcoming Republic Day camp in Delhi.
