Generally it is stated that there are main 15 OLQs. The Academy makes efforts to develop these qualities by organising different activities and conducting different programmers.
Some of these are described here in short:-
Discipline is the backbone of the Armed Force Services; therefore the Cadets coming from civil Life are moulded in this pattern by giving them training, instructions, and guidance etc. Discipline is made a part of each and every activity, every day and every walk of life.
New cadets are oriented to the Armed Forces by conducting different activities. They are made familiar with the life of the Armed Forces, their work, their devotion and their sacrifice for the nation.
Visits to the Academy by Retired or In-Service officers are conducted time to time on different occasions. They motivate, guide and inspire the cadets through their lectures, their life experiences. Cadets are given opportunity to interact with them face to face, by asking different questions on different aspects.

This Battalion undertakes tree plantation on the hills and on open grounds in surrounding areas every year in the months of July, August, September for protection of the environment. Our cadets help them in their mission of tree plantation.
