In a significant development, reservation  for Other Backward Classes will be introduced in Sainik Schools from next year. 

Defence Secretary Ajay Kumar confirmed the development.

As of now, 15% of the available seats are reserved for Scheduled Caste candidates and 7.5% for Scheduled Tribe candidates. 25% seats are specifically reserved for the children of serving and retired defense personnel. The balance seats are occupied by open category candidates based on the order of their merit.

More details awaited.
