Girls may soon be allowed to take admission at Sainik schools and National Defence Academy (NDA). The government is considering to implement such a proposal, Union Minister Subhash Ramrao Bhamre told the Lok Sabha. He further added that there are proposals are pending for setting up 21 more schools in the country; a total of 26 sainik schools are there as of now. To this, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley added that Rs. 80 crore has been allocated from the Budget for these schools.

The matter is under the consideration of the ministry, he said.
In the written reply, Arun Jaitley mentioned how Sainik schools and the Rashtriya Military schools have proven their utility by providing a large number of cadets joining the NDA. Supporting his statement he stated that in 2016, 29.33 cadets sent to NDA were from Sainik Schools, which comprised of a total of 159 cadets. During this period, 31 cadets or 5.71 per cent were from Rashtriya Military schools. One of the objectives for opening Sainik Schools, as Jaitley, is 'removing regional imbalance in the officer cadre of the defence services.'

To another question, Jaitley said no new regiment has been raised since Independence, while the sub units raised were as per the existing nomenclature and numerical seniority of the units in that regiment.


"As per government policy on the subject, all citizens irrespective of their class, creed, region or religion are eligible for enrolment in the Indian Army. After Independence, it has been the policy of the Government of India not to raise any new Regiment for a particular class/community/religion or region," he said.
