Army to set up boarding schools for soldier’s children

Army to set up boarding schools for soldier’s children

New Delhi: Army Chief Gen. Bipin Rawat today said the government has given in-principle approval for setting up two boarding schools for children of soldiers killed or disabled in action. He said the initiative is being taken in view of the government capping at Rs. 10,000 per month the educational assistance it gives to children of martyrs or those disabled in action. The Army Chief said once the schools become operational, the government may be conveyed that it can withdraw the educational assistance scheme.

Gen. Rawat said the two educational institutions will be developed on the lines of Delhi’s Sanskriti school. One school will be built in Pathankot and the other will come up either in Bhopal or Secunderabad.

It may take 3 to 4 years for the schools to become operational.

Till then the Army will take care of the financial need of children of martyrs or those disabled in action, if government does not provide them funds, Gen. Rawat said.

After graduating from the two boarding schools, the students can study in the Army-run colleges.

He said the government put a cap on the educational assistance as some people were misusing the scheme.

“Somehow, some people among us started misusing the scheme… We told the government that we will review the policy so that only genuine people can benefit from it,” he said.

Under the scheme, rolled out in 1972, tuition fee of children of martyrs or those disabled in action were completely waived in schools, colleges and other professional educational institutions.

However, the government had on July 1 issued an order capping the amount at Rs. 10,000 per month, triggering discontentment among all the three services.

The Chiefs of Staff Committee (CoSC) had written to the defence ministry requesting it to remove the cap.

However, the government last week made it clear that it would not review the decision.

Around 250 students have reportedly been affected by the government’s decision.
