According to the Ministry of Defence, girls will now be admitted to Rashtriya Indian Military College (RIMC) and Rashtriya Military Schools (RMS), following the Supreme Court’s directive. In an affidavit filed with the Supreme Court, it was submitted that additional vacancies must be authorized along with other necessary infrastructure and administrative support. This would be done in stages, the MoD stated.
Girls can take the RIMC entrance exam
Five girls will be admitted every six months to increase the maximum capacity of students for entry into RIMC in the first phase from 250 to 300. With some infrastructure modifications and additional staff to support the girl cadets, this increase could be achieved. For this reason, it is proposed that girls can take the RIMC entrance exam in June 2022 in order to begin studies in RIMC in January 2023.
Additionally, in Phase-2, the number of girls to be enrolled will gradually increase from 300 to 350 every six months. With this expansion, RIMC will have 250 boys and 100 girls by the end of the school year. The Government of Uttarakhand proposes to allow girls to take the RIMC entrance examination in June 2027 for the start of the year 2028. The RIMC is located in Dehradun, Uttarakhand.
Infrastructure upgrades for girls
To facilitate the daily lives of girls on the school campus with respect to privacy, safety and security, the affidavit notes the necessity of creating girl-friendly infrastructure. The board of officers is examining the issue in order to establish the infrastructure and support needed to make this a girl-friendly environment.
