NDC Alumni Right from inception, NDC has enjoyed the reputation of a pioneering institute of its kind in the whole of Asia and sixth in the world in its class. Over the years, the NDC has grown vastly in stature and renown. It is the highest seat of learning in the Indian Armed Forces and has produced numerous Chiefs of all three forces. Besides, the NDC alumni include Lieutenant Generals, Vice Admirals and Air Marshals of the three star ranks. In addition, a significant number of distinguished foreign alumni have reached the level of Chiefs of their services in their countries. What is especially impressive is the fact that three of its alumni rose to be the Heads of State in their respective nations, namely President Hussein Muhammed Ershad of Bangladesh, President Frederick William Kiwasi Akuffo of Ghana and His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuk, the King of Bhutan. Not only has the NDC produced great soldiers, it has also produced great statesmen and brilliant public servants.
