NCC was instituted in Andhra Pradesh in May 1949 when it was a part of the erstwhile composite Madras State. In 1955, on re-organisation of the State, the existing NCC units were placed under an independent NCC Circle HQ for the new State of Andhra Pradesh (designated as HQ 12 Circle Cadet Corps). The NCC Circle Headquarters was re-designated as Directorate in 1962 with an Air Commodore as its Director. The Director’s post was re-designated as Deputy Director General in Aug 1985.

During the Republic Day Celebrations in 2008, the NCC cadets of the Andhra Pradesh Contingent won the Best Directorate Award and the prestigious Prime Minister’s Banner. This milestone had earlier been achieved in 1966 and  2009.  This was replicated in 2021.

On 02 Jun 2014, the State of Andhra Pradesh was bifurcated into two States i.e., Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.  A case was taken up with Directorate General NCC to re-designate NCC Directorate Andhra Pradesh to NCC Directorate Andhra Pradesh and Telangana (NCC Directorate AP&T).  Directorate General NCC accorded sanction on 25 Mar 2015 and NCC Directorate (AP) was re-christened as NCC Directorate (AP&T).  Hyderabad, Secunderabad, Nizamabad and Warangal Groups and the units under their jurisdiction are bracketed under Telangana while Guntur, Kakinada, Kurnool, Tirupati and Visakhapatnam and the units under their jurisdiction fall within Andhra Pradesh. Accordingly, the units under Telangana were also renamed as Telangana Battalions.
