The Youth Exchange Programme between Bhutan and India was initially started in 1998 which was first time extended by the National cadet Corps (NCC) of India through IMTRAT and then later through Royal Bhutanese Embassy in New Delhi, India.


More than 250 scouts from Bhutan have participated in the Republic Day Celebration Camp in New Delhi, India and to reciprocate, the Department of Youth and Sports, Ministry of Education invites NCC delegates from India to attend the National Day Celebration in 17th December annually. The objective of the exchange programme is to foster Goodwill and Friendship amongst the young people of both the countries through better understanding and awareness on culture, traditions, believes and values.


10 cadets and two officials from India visited Bhutan from 12 December to 18th December, 2014 to attend the 107th National Day Celebration in Thimphu. During their visit, they got an opportunity to visit Indian Embassy, IMTRAT head office in Thimphu, Haa Military Training Center and many other Bhutanese historical sites in Paro, Punakha and Thimphu. The Hon’ble Sherig Lyonpo also hosted lunch for the delegates.  An exchange of cultural programme between NCC delegates and Scouts from Bhutan was organized to provide opportunity to interact and exchange idea and views among youth to further strengthen friendship and cooperation.
