Ajay Kumar said Prime Minister Narendra Modi would also dedicate eight programmes and projects to the nation, which would include 100 Sainik schools, which would be started in the next two years.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch the National Cadet Corps Alumni Association. This will help the former cadets of the organisation to keep in touch with it. PM Narendra Modi will be the first member of the NCC Alumni Association to be launched on November 19 in Jhansi," the Defence Secretary added.
He said 1,283 schools in border and coastal districts would have the NCC.
"There are 896 schools in border areas, 255 in coastal areas and 132 in stations where the Indian Air Force is present," he added.
Earlier, PM Modi had announced that Sainik schools across the country would be open for admission to girl students as well.
"The government has decided that doors of every Sainik School will now be open for girl children," the Prime Minister had said while addressing the nation on 75th Independence Day from Red Fort in New Delhi.
PM Modi said he used to get messages from lakhs of daughters that they too wanted to study in Sainik Schools, therefore the doors of Sainik schools should be opened for them too.
