It has made a standing arrangement with the universities that undergraduate NSmen would be called up for In-Camp Training (ICT) only during specific parts of the university vacations. During these periods, the university will not conduct any compulsory academic programme. MINDEF will not grant deferment on the ground of academic commitments. The call-up periods are indicated in the table below:
|1st||||06 Jun to 31 Jul 2016|
|2nd||7 Dec 15 – 3 Jan 16||20 Jun to 31 Jul 2016|
