Bhubaneswar: Commodore LK Agrawalla, Deputy Director General (DDG) NCC Odisha relinquished Command of NCC Odisha today after rendering 35 yrs of exemplary service to Indian Navy. Commodore Agrawalla, while being at helms of affairs as DDG, played pivotal role in expeditiously raising four NCC Battalions at Nabarangpur, Rayagada, Bhawanipatna and Keonjhar, thus covering the existing gaps and reaching out to the youth from rural and tribal areas of the State. He worked relentlessly towards expanding the reach of NCC and providing a viable career option to the youth.
Under his leadership, the State NCC consistently achieved unprecedented results in various competitions at the national level. The officer also played a key role during conduct of National Youth Festival and in facilitating transfer of NCC land for completion of long pending construction of stadium at Berhampur.
After such a successful innings, Commodore Lalit Kumar Agrawalla hands over the baton of NCC Odisha to Commodore Shailendra Singh who is an ace aviator with enviable professional track record and maritime experience.
