The course also included 20 cadets from friendly foreign countries (Bhutan, Tajikistan, Maldives, Vietnam, Tanzania, Mauritius, Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Turkmenistan, Fiji, Uzbekistan, Sudan, Mongolia and Bangladesh).

The Passing Out Parade was not held on the Khetarpal Ground but in the historic Habibullah Hall with all the cadets, faculty members and defence officials present maintaining social distancing and sporting face masks. With NDA Commandant Lieutenant General Asit Mistry, AVSM, SM, VSM presiding over the Passing Out Parade, the medals to the best cadets, too, were awarded without any physical contact.
