APPROVAL FOR NEW SAINIK SCHOOLS AT RAVANGLA

New Delhi, December 03: The Ministry of Defence has accorded 'in principle' approval for the establishment of new Sainik Schools at Chingchip (Mizoram), Ravangla (Sikkim) & Ambikapur (Chhattisgarh).
The objective of Sainik Schools is to create an opportunity in each state to contribute to the Officers pool in the armed forces and to bring public school education within the reach of the common man. There has been a constant improvement in the academic standards of Sainik Schools. However, the infrastructure standards and general facilities of these schools have been facing a decline.
With a view to maintain the academic standards in Sainik Schools, an elaborate programme of in-service training to the teachers and competition oriented training for the cadets is being implemented with the assistance of experts from the Services and professional educational institutions/bodies. The Ministry of Defence also provides training grants to the schools with a view to upgrade training infrastructure and skills.
Sainik Schools are established on receipt of a specific request from a State Government agreeing to provide land along with funds for the creation and maintenance of basic infrastructure, equipment and facilities besides scholarships for the cadets of the state. There are 22 Sainik Schools functioning in the country.
This information was given by the Defence Minister AK Antony in a written reply to Raghunath Jha in Lok Sabha.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
