View :  Revised Schedule for Admission 2021-22: Kendriya Vidyalaya

(a) Every organization keeps revisiting its procedures and policies in order to bring qualitative changes in the system. Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) has withdrawn some of the provisions that were discretionary such as quota of Hon’ble Minister of Education, Hon’ble Members of Parliament, Chairman, Vidyalaya Management Committee, Sponsoring Authority, etc. These quotas were over and above the sanctioned class strength and hence no seats have been freed. This will lead to maintaining a healthy pupil-teacher ratio (PTR) and also to achieve desired learning outcomes.

(b) 220 children admitted in Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) under the PM Cares for Children Scheme. State/UT-wise details are annexed.

(c) PM Cares for Children Scheme provides to ensure comprehensive care and protection of children who have lost their parent(s) to COVID pandemic, in a sustained manner, enable their wellbeing through health insurance, empower them through education and equip them for self-sufficient existence with financial support on reaching 23 years of age. Accordingly, special provisions have been made in the KVS admission guidelines 2022-23 for admissions to the children who have lost their parent(s) to COVID pandemic, over and above the sanctioned class strength.

(d) KVs have a distinct character and are established to cater to educational needs of the wards of transferable Central Government Employees including Defence & Para- Military personnel, Central Autonomous Bodies, Central Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) and Central Institute of Higher Learning (IHL) by providing a common programme of education throughout the country. KVS has been providing education to children of marginalized communities, disadvantageous sections of society and economically weaker sections by giving 25% reservation in admission in Class-I. In addition, reservation as per constitutional provisions to Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes (Non Creamy Layer) and seats are also horizontally reserved for Differently Abled-children at entry stage. 2 seats per section are also reserved for single girl child in Class I.
