Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Indian military services have established numerous and distinguished academies and staff colleges across India for the purpose of training professional soldiers in new generation military sciences, warfare command and strategy, and associated technologies. Rashtriya Indian Military College: The Rashtriya Indian Military College, Dehradun was founded on 13 March 1922 with the object of providing necessary preliminary training for Indians wishing to become officers in Indian Armed Forces. The institution now serves as a feeder institution to the National Defence Academy, Khadakwasla, wherein cadets of the Army, Navy and Air Force receive their initial training. Sainik Schools: The scheme to establish Sainik Schools was started in 1961 to broaden the recruitment base and remove a perceived regional imbalance in the officer's cadre of the Defence Forces. Sainik Schools are a joint venture of the Central and State Governments. At present, 18 Sainik schools are being administered by Sainik Schools Society. These schools are affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education.show more
