The scheme to establish Sainik Schools originated in order to serve as an ideal residential educational institution for the deserving intelligent sections of the boys, hailing especially from the rural areas of our country. Moreover, the high levels of physical, mental and intellectual attainments needed for induction into the Officer Cadre of the Defence Services could not be nurtured in the common schools, mainly because of the lack of infrastructure facilities. The training imparted in Sainik Schools influences the students in shaping their social attitudes and meaningful approach to the life in general in order to emerge as responsible citizens of India and leaders in different walks of life.
