With a vision to promote the education among the girl children, all the Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) across India has decided to free education from classes VI-XII to girls who are the single child of their parents
The Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) are one of the best schools from the public education sector of the country. Across India, there are around 1100 KVs which caters to over 12 lakh children. However, getting an admission in a KV is a difficult task but most parents end up not getting an admission because of their ignorance of the admission guidelines. The guidelines provide for automatic admission & free education for a girl child who is the only child to her parents
List of the guidelines issued by KVs for Admission purpose
Various priorities should be followed in granting admissions. For KVs in Civil or Defence Sector, the following order of priority should be followed.
Children belonging to transferable and non-transferable Central government employees or if they are the children of ex- servicemen.
