Sainik Schools provide quality education at a reasonable fee and if the central government gives its nod to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s proposal, more students of the state will get the opportunity to get enrolled in these schools, the spokesperson said.

The UP government’s proposal, if approved, will give a huge impetus to the education ecosystem of Uttar Pradesh, the spokesperson added.
