The National Defence Academy, also known as NDA is an academy for Indian armed services and is located 20 kilometres away from Pune. Members from the three defence services: The Indian Army, Indian Navy and Indian Air Force train together until they are sent for their separate commissioning. The NDA campus is in Khadakwasla, South-West of Pune and the campus area is around 7000 acres. One of the reasons why the campus location was chosen was because of its proximity to the Khadakwasla lake. The academy is often called an ideal combination of perfection and heroism. Therefore, anyone who is aspiring to join the defence, this is one opportunity to witness true patriotic spirit.
The first tri-service academy in India, NDA is known for its prestigious Passing Out Parade (POP) and war memorials. One can visit this place anytime during the year with prior permission. The academy holds a lot of respect for those who served the nation and wishes to pass on values of nationalism to those who are aspirants in this field.
