As part of the Government’s initiative to set up 100 new Sainik Schools in partnership mode, Sainik School Society, Ministry of Defence (MoD) will re-open its portal for registration of eligible interested applicant schools, with effect from September 27, 2023 till November 25, 2023.

Interested schools/trusts/NGOs etc. are advised to go through the Qualitative Requirements, Memorandum of Agreement and Rules & Regulations for the new Sainik Schools, available on the portal.

According to a released issued on Tuesday the 26th of September 2023 – Schools/NGOs/Trusts/Societies etc. which have already registered and applied during Round-1 and Round-2 need not apply afresh or pay registration fee again.

However, the MoD statement added that earlier registered applicant will be allowed to update their data on the portal, with fresh inputs, if any. For any further clarification/assistance, interested schools may send an email to sainikschoolaffiliation[at]gmail[dot]com.

The establishment of new 100 Sanik Schools is in line with the Modi’s government’s vision to provide quality education to the students in tune with the National Education Policy and give them better career opportunities, including joining the Armed Forces; but also provide an opportunity to the State Governments/NGOs/private sector to work hand-in-hand with the Central Government towards nation building.

Towards this, Sainik Schools Society has approved 42 Private/NGOs/State Government Schools as new Sainik Schools.

These 42 schools are apart from the existing 33 Sainik Schools already functioning under the erstwhile pattern.

These new schools, besides their affiliation to respective education boards, will function under the aegis of Sainik Schools Society and follow the Rules and Regulations for new Sainik Schools in partnership mode.
