The selected candidates will be trained for 14 months at Manesar.  The training is quite challenging, because of which the drop-out rate from this is 70-80%. 

The candidates who successfully complete these 14 months of tough training are inducted into the NSG. After induction, all commandos undergo further specialized training. 

Phantom Commando Unit

 NSG also has a Phantom Commando Unit, which is an extremely difficult tag to obtain. Only 1% of NSG commandos are given this tag.  This unit is used for very high-risk situations where there is no room for failure.
