BJP on WB gov’t ‘refusing’ to release funds for NCC cadets

Mamata Banerjee, Chief Minister of West Bengal

Kolkata: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday criticized the West Bengal government led by Mamata Banerjee for allegedly refusing to release funds for NCC cadets.

BJP’s Amit Malviya said Banerjee is “ruining institutions and destroying careers for young people”.

“Mamata Banerjee is ruining institutions and destroying the careers of young people. Now NCC cadets are suffering in Bengal as the WB government refuses to release funds. Cadets aspiring to their Certificate B and C exams, which would have earned them a direct interview with the SSB, will miss the opportunity,” Malviya tweeted.

He also shared a letter from the NCC to the Ministry of Defense regarding “stopping of registrations due to lack of budget support from the State of West Bengal for the financial year 2022-23”.

West Bengal government ‘refuses’ to release funds

According to reports, the West Bengal financial crisis led by Mamata Banerjee has negatively impacted the careers of thousands of National Cadet Corps (NCC) officer cadets in the state.

The state is said to have over a million NCC cadets and is among the best states to date. According to reports, state governments are expected to bear 25% of the total expenses related to cadet training and other activities.

About 50,000 cadets in West Bengal will not be able to sit for the ‘B’ and ‘C’ certificate exams in 2023 as enough camps have not been held this year.

“This is a serious problem. Cadets aspire to sit their ‘B’ and ‘C’ certificate exams and perform well as it helps them to join the Indian Armed Forces as officers. Those who score high on the ‘B’ and ‘C’ certificate exams (both) and score more than 55% do not need to take the Combined Defense Services Examination (CDS) written test They report directly for the Service Selection Board (SSB) interview.This is a great advantage,” said a report quoting Major Dr. BB Singh, PRO, NCC, West Bengal.
