Opening of Kendriya Vidyalayas
There are 1086 Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) functioning in the country.
A comprehensive review of the scheme of the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) was assigned to the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Bangalore on 6th February, 2009. The IIM, Bangalore has submitted its recommendations on 15th February, 2011. The Board of Governors (BOG) of the KVS have considered the recommendations of the IIM, Bangalore and evaluated the response of the KVS thereon in its meeting.
The KVs are opened upon receipt of a viable proposal in the prescribed proformae from the various Ministries of Govt. of India and State Governments/UTs thereby permitting the commitment of the required resources. However, the opening of new KVs depends on the availability of funds and the approval of the competent authority, subject to the approval of the 12th Five Year Plan.
This information was given by the Minister of State for Human Resource Development, Dr. Shashi Tharoor in Lok Sabha on Wednesday.
