As many as 26 boys and three girls, who hail from remote regions of Jammu and Kashmir, will pursue their studies at the school free of cost under this initiative, Capt Kuldeep of the Indian Army said.

The entire cost of their education will be met by the Indian Army, he said.

Operation Sadbhavana is a goodwill initiative undertaken by the Indian Army to help the people of Kashmir join the mainstream of the society.
