RSS Army school 'Rajju Bhaiya Sainik Vidya Mandir' to start classes from April
New Delhi : Rajju Bhaiya Sainik Vidya Mandir (RBSVM), first Army school to be run by the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS), will begin its classes from April in Bulandshahr district of Uttar Pradesh. Only boys school has been named after a former RSS chief Rajju Bhaiya.
According to media reports, classes from 6 to 12 will have the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) curriculum.
Eight seats will be reserved for the children of personnel killed in battle. The wards of the martyrs will also get some age relaxation. There would be no other reservation in the school and it would follow the CBSE pattern.
It has been learned that the classes will begin from April 2020 and the first batch will be of 160 students.
"We want those aspiring to join the defence forces, to get proper education in values (sanskar), culture (sanskriti) and harmony (samrasta) so that our defence forces emerge even stronger in the coming years. The idea is to give education as well as moral and spiritual guidance to students and this is possible only in a residential school," news agency IANS quoted a senior RSS functionary as saying.
RSS’ educational wing Vidya Bharati would provide the principal to the school. Both students and teachers will have uniforms — light-blue shirt and dark-blue trouser for students; grey-coloured trouser and white shirt for teachers.
