NDC Creates History

National Defence College, New Delhi, which is affiliated to University of Madras, recently conducted a Viva-Voce for Ph.D Degree on Defence related topic. It is for the first time a public Viva-Voce for Ph.D in Defence and Strategic Studies was conducted at any Defence institute. It was also an historic occasion for University of Madras when it conducted a Viva-Voce outside the geographical boundaries of its Jurisdiction.
National Defence College, New Delhi conducts M.Phil course under autonomous pattern and was also recognised as a research institution in 2009. Since then various research activities at NDC have been initiated. Maj Gen (Retd) GD Bakshi who was a Senior Directing Staff at National Defence College from 01 Aug 2006 to 31 May 2008, registered for his Ph.D Degree with department of Defence and Strategic Studies, University of Madras. He defended his research work publically on "Limited War Under conditions of Nuclear Symmetry: The Urgent Need for an Indian doctrine" on 09 Feb 2011 at NDC. The aspect enunciated by Gen Bakshi was debated by senior serving, retired Defence officers and experts in this field in an open Viva-Voce.
Air Marshal PK Roy, Commandant, National Defence College while congratulating Maj Gen (Retd) Bakshi exhorted the course officers to emulate Gen Bakshi's achievement. HH/Raman (Release ID :69816)
