Mizoram Sainik school to start classes from 2017

Aizawl, 15 May (UNI): Mizoram Sainik school, being constructed at Chhingchhip village in central Mizoram's Serchhip district, will begin classes from the 2017-18 academic session.

Home Minister R Lalzirliana, who inspected the construction today, was informed that since the entire physical works could not be completed by that time, admission would be done for only 60 students for class six.

Besides buildings, ongoing physical works include power supply from Chhingchhip power sub-station at the cost of Rs 97.66 lakh and water supply from Phaisen river at the cost of Rs 7.8 crore. The officials said water supply is the biggest challenge that they are facing.

The Home Minister found the quality of works to be satisfactory and urged the contractors and engineers to continue to maintain quality and speed so as to complete the works within the stipulated time.

The minister praised the Chhingchhip village council for donating land for the Sainik school, and said it was a wise move as the village would be the one that benefit the most from the school.

Mizoram Sainik school will be the 26th such institution in India and the fourth in the northeast. Assam, Manipur and Nagaland have Sainik schools
