1. Razmak is located at a distance of 120 km South West of  Bannu  and  80  km  North  West of Miranshah at an altitude of 6500 feet above sea level, wedged between towering mountains  in  the midst of the famous Wazir country. The Razmak Cantonment, which Houses  the   Cadet   College,  presents   a  picturesque   sight  in winter when  the hills  wear a mantle of snow four to five feet deep. The summers  are  pleasant  and  the  climate,  invigorating  throughout the year remains particularly conducive to the pursuit of knowledge. Before independence, Razmak was British Army  Station.  This  used to be British Army biggest bachelor camp. It was called as “Little London”. The Army had two portions, upper camp and lower  camp.   At independence,  the Pakistan Government adopted a policy of leaving control of the Tribal Areas to the “Frontier Corps” (FC) and  withdrew  the  regular Army Units. There was no FC at Razmak and the Camp was handed  over  to  the  Khasadars.  In  1973 “ The Shawal Rifles” a unit of FC was raised at Razmak. In 1975, a decision was taken to House a new Cadet College mainly for the benefit of the Boys of all the Tribal Areas.

 

  1. College was  established  at  Razmak  through  a  Presidential  order  of  27  December,  1977.   College  started functioning in 1978. Initially a batch of 100 cadets joined the College in  March  1978.  Cadets  were  admitted   in classes 7th, 8th and 9th. Cadets were divided into two Houses viz Ghazali & Bilal. With an annual intake of 50 cadets every  year, eventually the College reached to the optimum level of 6 Houses, viz Ghazali, Bilal, Jinnah, Babar, Abdali & Khushhal. For sometime, the intake stabilized at 80 cadets annually. However, in 2012 the entry to class 7th was stopped  and  intake  was increased to 92. Resultantly we had to select only  12 cadets  for  class  8th   for  2013.  Since  2016  Entry,  the  annual  intake  reach  to  140 cadets per year.  The  College  has  so  far produced  more than 500 Doctors, 415 Engineers, 475 Officers in Armed Forces and more than 600 Razmians are serving in other fields like  Civil  Services,  IT,  Politics,  Education  etc.  The College  was shifted to Peshawar in 2009 due to law & order situation  and   reopened  at  Razmak  in  May  2011.  The  College  was  again  shifted to Aman Gharh in April 2012 due  to  prevailing  law &  order situation in North Waziristan.  The Amangarh location comprised of a godowns and garrages not at all suitable for  living.  20  to  25  cadets  were  living  a  room.  There  were no play grounds and the teaching learning environment was badly damaged. Parents and Ex. cadets created lot of hue and cry and demanded shifting of the college. Army posted a serving Colonel ( Razmian) as Principal with  a  mission   to  recreate  the  college.  Commander  11  Corps  got  new accommodation at Nowshera cantt for the College. The new  accommodation  fulfilled  all  the  requirements  of  the  college.  The  new  accommodation   was   of 19 and 20th century built and identical to Razmak in outlook.
