     "The NDC will provide joint training of instructions to senior Service and Civil Officers and will be under the administrative control of the Ministry of Defence. The study at the College will relate to socio-political, industrial, technological and strategic aspects of National Defence".
     However, on 9 September 1960, Army HQ laid down that being an Inter-Service Institution, the College was under the control of the Chiefs of Staff and for local administration the College was to deal with HQ Delhi & Rajasthan Area.
