Why Army public school started in India

Private schools were becoming an affordable for soldiers and also quality of education was not given, there was surety for the quality education and guarantee of admission was not provided for the wards of soldiers/Officers who were frequently transferred one station to another station.


So education of Defense personnel children was realised as an important welfare activity. So it was considered, there should be a system when Wards of Defense personnel get quality of education along with the assurance of getting admission when they were being transferred from one station to another station. So, 15 Jan 1980 , on the occasion of Army Day, it was announced to establish the chain of schools in various stations.
