The Sainik Schools are a system of schools in India established and managed by the Sainik Schools Society under Ministry of Defence They were conceived in 1961 by V K Krishna Menon, the then Defence Minister of India, to rectify the regional and class imbalance amongst the Officer cadre of the Indian Military, and to prepare students for entry into the National Defence Academy NDA, Khadakwasla, Pune and Indian Naval Academy Today there are 25 such schools covering all the states of the country12

The schools come under the purview of respective state governments and Ministry of Defence, and in his Union Budget of 2008, Finance minister, P Chidambaram, allocated Rs 2 crore to each of the 25 Sainik schools, to counter rising attrition in the defence forces, especially at the officer level3
