From the scholastic year 2021-22, reservation for Other Backward Classes (OBC) will be presented in Sainik schools all over the nation, Defense Secretary Ajay Kumar said on Friday in a Twitter post.
Following the choice, the portion of seats in Sainik schools would be Scheduled Castes (SC) 15%, Scheduled Tribes (ST) 7%, OBC (non-velvety layer) 27%, protection class 13% and general classification 38%, as per a Defense Ministry notice. Dated October 13, the warning was shipped off administrators of all Sainik schools the nation over.
The Sainik Schools Society working under the Defense Ministry oversees 33 private schools the nation over.
The warning expressed that 67% of the seats in a Sainik school are held for up-and-comers from the State or the Union Territory (UT) in which the school is found and the excess 33% is saved for understudies from different States/UTs. These two records will be named List A and List B. The above dispersion of openings across classifications is material to both the rundowns.
In October a year ago, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh affirmed a proposition for confirmation of young ladies to Sainik schools from scholastic meeting 2021-22 out of a staged way. The Ministry had expressed that this choice was taken after the accomplishment of a pilot venture in Sainik School Chhingchhip in Mizoram two years prior.
The main National Cadet Corps (NCC) camp in the Kashmir Valley following a hole of 10 years was held as of late from October 18 to 26. Around 120 cadets of No. 3 J&K NCC Battalion, situated in Baramulla, partook in the instructional course at Army Goodwill School, Uri.
The NCC began in the nation in 1948, and in 1954 in Jammu and Kashmir.
“This is the primary NCC camp in the Kashmir Valley after very nearly 10 years. Prior cadets from Kashmir used to go to Jammu or Leh,” said Maj. Gen. Virendra Vats, General Officer Commanding of Army’s 19 Infantry Division.
