After 33 years, the Indian Navy has decided to reactivate the naval training facility at Manasbal Lake

Ganderbal, Sept 14 (KNO): After a hiatus of thirty-three years, the Indian Navy has reactivated the naval training facility at Manasbal Lake in the Ganderbal region of Central Kashmir in order to conduct training for NCC recruits.

According to the news agency Kashmir News Observer (KNO), Group Commander NCC Group Srinagar, Brigadier K S Kalsi, stated at a press conference that approximately one hundred National Cadet Corps (NCC) cadets, including girls, from a variety of colleges across Jammu and Kashmir are going to participate in the camp.

It is important to note that the training in the region was halted in the early 1990s when militant activity first began.

Brigadier General Kalsi said that the attendees voiced their delight at the prospect of receiving training in this region, as well as their contentment with the accommodations arranged for them in terms of both housing and food.

He said that today is a historic day since the NCC training operations of naval wing are being restored at the Manasbal Lake after a hiatus of 33 years.

The NCC is a significant part of the national building process. In addition to preparing them for service in the armed forces, our primary objective is to help them mature into disciplined and responsible members of society, he said.

He went on to say that the training was put on hold when the militant movement first started, but that it has since been revived and can now be resumed. “Since the activities of the government, administration, and armed forces have improved the security situation to such an extent that we are able to resume and revive the training area,” he said.

The training, according to Brig Kalsi, was conducted in Nagrota and Mansar lake during the suspension at Manasbal, which created difficulties for the cadets coming from Kashmir due to the poor state of the national highway— (KNO)
