Bangladesh National Cadet Corps:
Under the Indian Territorial Forces Act 1923, University Officers Training Corps (UOTC) was launched in the University of Dhaka in 1927 to impart military training to university students. In 1971, after the country gained independence by a liberation war, its scope and facilities were extended to the other government Universities and more battalions were raised.
