MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT (DR. SATYA PAL SINGH)
(a) During the last four years i.e. 2014-15 to 2017-18, 93 Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) and 32 Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs) have been opened including in the States of Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand. The year-wise, State / UT-wise details of KVs and JNVs opened are annexed.
(b) A full fledged KV caters to the educational needs of approximately 1000 students. Accordingly, around 93,000 students are likely to be benefited from these newly opened 93 KVs. In each JNV, annual intake is 80 students at Class 6th level. As JNVs are from 6th to 12th, each JNV has a total capacity of 560 students. Thus, nearly 18000 students are likely to be benefitted from the newly opened 32 JNVs.
(c) No proposal is under consideration at present to open KVs in SCs/STs populated areas.
