Its a reputed institute for tri services of armed forces. Very large expansive campus having all kind of amenities for training of the cadets and very large mess. Must visit if you can manage. We were accompanied by a retired major general who had taken prior permission for our large group.

NDA is prestigious training academy for induction in armed forces as officers after passing out 12th class. Situated away from city of Pune is one the best institute of country. Cadets are trained in 3 year course before they go to respective academies of army, navy and air force. Well maintained and neat place. Worth visiting in case you are near Pune. You may need permission to go inside. You can see well disciplined Cadets moving in disciplined manner. Beautifully manicured lawns and feel proud of our Armed forces. Every year twice Passing out parade is conducted in Jun and Dec, try in case you can witness that. Various architecture and buildings are well maintained . You can also visit khadakwasla dam nearby.

Had been here at the time of my MBA induction and the purpose of the visit was to make students like us understand about a systematic disciplined and hard-working life.

The National Defence Academy is a must-do if visiting Pune. It is one one the three institutions of it’s kind globally where tri-services leadership is trained in it’s cradle.
For every Indian citizen, it is a matter of pride and instils great confidence to see the the rigorous training, fine facilities and trained faculty provided by the Government for the cadets.
Permission for a visitor’s pass needs to be sanctioned a couple of days ahead for a Sunday and there are areas open to public that showcase a day in the life of a cadet, equitation training and a state of art kitchen and Mess for the Cadets which has a seating capacity of 2000. Any cuisine is catered to in-house.
It takes an hour one way going upto NDA from the centre of town, so one has to reserve half a day pre-lunch for the visit.
Jai Hind.
