Indian Government approves thirteen new KVs, five in UP
The proposal was cleared by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA), chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, benefitting 13,000 more eligible students, an official statement said.
"The remaining KVs would come up in Washim and Parbham in Maharashtra, Nawada and Devkund in Bihar, Palamau in Jharkhand, Chakpikarong in Manipur, Siddipet in Telangana, Kudamalakunte in Karnataka," the statement said.
The proposal for opening the new KVs was examined by a committee under a "challenge method" -- where those scoring the maximum weight points were recommended for approval. At present, the KVs are imparting quality education to more than 12 lakh students, it said.
The district has a high percentage of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes and there is a huge demand for establishing an additional JNV in that district. Moreover, the state government has also shown readiness to earmark the required extent of land and temporary accommodation for setting up the school, it added.
