FWO BOYS HOSTEL OF WARDS OF JCOs / SOLDIERS
Most of our soldiers hail from rural areas / poor background and have limited access to quality education for their wards due to lack of educational facilities and their native places. They are also
deprived of relatively better educational facilities available in cantonments due to shortage of married accommodation, current deployment in operation areas and certain socio economic compulsion.
In order to alleviate the problem of non availability of family accommodation in the cantonments / garrison and help the soldiers in their efforts towards education of their wards, it was decided by COAS to establish boy’s hostels in all cantonments. To fulfill this noble cause FWO boy’s hostel was constructed with an estimated cost of Rs. 35 M. This hostel was being established with following objectives in view:
