Daily Routine of NDA Cadets | Training and Activities at National Defence Academy

National Defence Academy is the premier Tri-Service Training Institute of the Indian Armed Forces. The Daily Routine of NDA Cadets is tough and keeps the future officers engaged all the time in one or the Activities. The Daily Routine of NDA Cadets might be difficult for the First term cadets, but as time flies, the routine becomes part and parcel of their lives.

Three formative years at the academy instil in the cadets a sense of intense belonging, bonding and feelings of oneness with the alma-mater. Breaking bread and training together engender the spirit of camaraderie which in turn forms the bedrock of inter-services co-operation in times to come. Herein are sown the seeds of ‘Jointmanship’, the new mantra of coordinated inter-services strategy. The cadet during his sojourn at the NDA holds many a thing close to his heart. By merging his identity with others, he gains the solace of a herd, the power of a team and the leverage of a group. This attribute of solidarity stands him in good stead during testing times.

The Daily Schedule of NDA Cadets goes like this :
