The Ministry of Defence, following the directive issued by the Supreme Court, will open the gates of Rashtriya Indian Military College (RIMC) and Rashtriya Military Schools (RMS) for admissions for girl students.
According to a statement by MoD, “According to an affidavit filed in the Supreme Court, there is a requirement of authorising additional vacancies along with other associated infrastructure and administrative support. This is proposed to be carried out in two phases.”
Entrance Exam for Admissions to Start from June 2022
Phase I – In the first phase of the admissions into the RIMC, the maximum capacity for girls will increase from 250 to 300. According to the plan, five new girls will be inducted every six months.
It is expected that the increase in admissions may be affected due to the changes to the infrastructure and recruitment of additional staff to support the girl cadets.
Based on the plan, girl students will be able to sit for the entrance exam in June 2022. The effective session is expected to start from January 2023.
Phase II – In the second phase, the capacity for admissions will increase from 300 to 350. It means that 10 new girls will be admitted into the schools every six months.
Hence, at the end of the expansion program, RIMC will have 250 boys and 100 girl students.
RIMC is situated in Uttarakhand, Dehradun.
