PART I – GENERAL
The National Defence Academy (NDA) has the unique distinction of being the first institution in the world to impart joint training to officer cadets of the Army, Navy, and Air Force. The concept and genesis of NDA date back to the period before Independence and evolved from the lessons learned during World War II.
One of the major lessons learned during World War II was that the three Services had to be fully integrated and functional as a single strike force in order to be effective in war. Although mooted by senior British military leaders like Lord Mountbatten and Field Marshal Auchinleck, India’s far-sighted and visionary political leadership of that period gave its full support to the establishment of a tri-service training facility. Consequently, the Government of India appointed a high-powered committee in May 1945 to prepare a scheme for the establishment of a Military Academy, incorporating the best practices of all such institutions worldwide to conduct joint training of the future officers for the Army, Navy, and Air Force.
Based on the report submitted by this committee in 1946, the Indian Military Academy located at Dehradun was re-named as the Armed Forces Academy, and split into two wings: the “Inter-Services Wing” (later known as Joint Services Wing) and the “Military Wing”. It was Inter-Services Wing where combined training for the three Services commenced in January 1949. This was subsequently re-located from Dehradun to Khadakwasla and known as the NDA.
After an extended country-wide reconnaissance for a site, which would provide adequate space and potential for creating training facilities for all the three Services, Khadakwasla was chosen as the new home for the Inter-Services Wing in 1947. The location had till then, had been used as a Combined Warfare School for allied troops and was therefore suitable for the purpose. The foundation stone of NDA was laid at Khadakwasla by the then Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru on 06 October 1949 and the herculean task of shifting this institution from Dehradun to Khadakwasla was successfully performed under the able supervision of the then Commandant, Maj Gen E Habibullah. NDA was formally inaugurated by the then Chief Minister of Bombay, Shri Morarji Desai on 16 January 1955. The first Passing Out Parade (POP) held at NDA was reviewed by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru on 05 June 1955.
