Complete List Of 27 Sainik Schools In India

Sainik Schools in India Images

Sainik Schools (SS), as a chain of schools, were conceived in 1961 by the then Defence Minister of India VK Krishna Menon.

They were established to eliminate the regional imbalance in the recruitment to the National Defence Academy (NDA). Therefore, we have SS in all the major states of the country from north to south and west to east.

These schools are supported by the Central and State government and act as feeder institutions to the NDA.

In this post, MomJunction shares information on the Sainik Schools in India..
