Military Schools and Sainik Schools

Rashtriya Military Schools and Sainik Schools in India

At present, there are five Rashtriya Military Schools (RMS) and twenty four Sainik Schools under the Ministry of Defence in the country. Their state-wise location is enclosed as below.
At present there is no proposal to open any new RMS.
The Sainik Schools are set up on the request of concerned States subject to fulfillment of laid down criteria and not as a part of five year plan. Proposals have been received from the State Governments of Orissa, Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh for setting up new Sainik Schools in Sambalpur, Sagar and Chittoor district respectively.
Rashtriya Military Schools are fully financed by the Central Government. To improve performance of these schools, various measures are regularly being taken such as the regular training of Principals, teachers and cadets under the guidance of professionals from institutions like National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA) and National Council of Educational Research & Training (NCERT), etc.
