He said that this step will go a long way in educating and inspiring the youth while engaging them in the biggest festival of democracy and this will instill ideas of selfless service and develop democratic spirit in the young cadets.

The CEO said that the three cadets per polling booth will be deployed based on availability and deployment will be purely on a voluntary basis in such a manner that their station remains within their respective beat/district. NCC cadets who will be in uniform and without arms will assist Police personnel or Home Guard in non security related duties like traffic arrangement, queue management, assistance to old and persons with disability voters, any medical emergency, CEO elaborated.   

He said that cadets will be given remuneration on analogy of other polling personnel deployed on election duty while food refreshment of Rs.150 per day or packed lunch will be given to them and concerned DEOs will arrange for their transport. He said that the cadets will be entitled for Ex-gratia in case of any unforeseen event.

Group Commander NCC, Col. A.S. Bains was requested to provide district/unit wise detail of the available cadets of senior division,  above the age of 18 years, so that they can be suitably deployed after obtaining their willingness and parental consent. The cadets to be deployed will also be properly briefed and trained about their duties.

Such coordination meetings will also be organized at district level as well, he said. Additional Chief Electoral Officer Dalip Negi, State Police Nodal Officer (ADGP Law & Order) Abhishek Trivedi were present among others in the meeting.
