Yogi government to increase the number of Sainik schools in Uttar Pradesh
The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath said in a release, “The Central government has decided to affiliate 100 government schools, private schools, and NGOs with Sainik Schools Society, Ministry of Defence, from the 2022-23 academic year.”
After the approval of the Centre, the number of Sainik Schools in UP will increase significantly.
The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh has decided to double the number of Sainik schools in the state. This will ease up the admission process and a large number of students can enroll themselves.
These schools will be different from the existing Sainik schools and will focus on providing cost-effective ways to the larger populations across the country. This initiative has been taken under the vision of the National Education Policy (NEP).
Currently, the Sainik School Society is running three schools in the state while Captain Manoj Pandey Sainik School is under the state government.
There are around 33 Sainik Schools that are run by the Ministry of Defence all over the country.
Uttar Pradesh has the highest number of Sainik Schools as compared to other states. Three Sainik Schools are being run by the Defence Ministry in the state of Amethi, Jhansi, and Mainpuri, while a Sainik School is proposed to be constructed in Baghpat.
The construction work of a Sainik School in Gorakhpur has started, for which the government has also passed a budget of Rs 90 crore. These schools are affiliated with the CBSE.
The Uttar Pradesh government has passed a proposal in the Budget to develop Captain Manoj Pandey Sainik School Sarojini Nagar and double its capacity. It will be a dream come true for the girls who aim to join the army. The State government is also constructing a hostel with a capacity of 150 for girl cadets.
As per the government sources, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has sent a proposal to the Centre to set up a Sainik School in every division.
