Subject: Revision of norms prescribed for opening of new Kendriya Vidyalayas under Civil/Defence Sector.
Approval of the Board of Governors, KVS as accorded in its 106th meeting held on 15.11.2016, is hereby conveyed for modifications in the existing norms prescribed for opening of new Kendriya Vidyalayas under Civil/Defence Sector to the extent as given hereunder:-
A. Sponsoring Authorities
Proposal for opening of new Kendriya Vidyalayas will be considered, if sponsored by (a) Ministries or Departments of the Govt. of India; (b) State Governments; (c) Union Territories Administration
B. Requirement of land
The requisite extent of land to be provided, free of cost, by the sponsoring authority is as under:-
SI.NO Location Minimum extent of land (Acres) Desirable extent of land (Acres) 1 Metropolitan cities and Hyderabad & Bangalore
2 All other Locations.
The Sponsoring Authorities should make efforts to provide the desirable extent of land in case of land availability for creation of all sports and other infrastructural facilities and for future expansion of KV, since in the minimum extent of land norm as above, all these facilities may not be adequately created.
For State Sponsored KVs under Civil Sector, the proposals should come from State Govt. instead of from District Collectors. Also to ensure that some KVs develop all sports facilities like football field, 400 meter running track etc. the State Govt. will take care that at least every third proposal sent by them fulfils the desirable extent of land norms in future.
Water and electricity lines/ supply and approach road upto the site offered by sponsoring authority for construction of permanent school building will be provided by the sponsoring authority at their cost.
C.Accepatance of land for Kendriya Vidyalayas on donation basis:-
KVS may accept the land on donation basis with the following provisions:-
a) The donor may donate land to the State Govt,/District Administration who in turn will transfer the land to KVS on permanent grant basis.
b) KVS shall fix one plaque inside the Kendriya Vidyalaya campus at appropriate place engraving the name of donor as a mark of memory.
D. REQUIREMENT OF TEMPORARY ACCOMMODATION:
The sponsoring authority is liable to provide suitable & sufficient rent free temporary accommodation to run the classes. Preferably, the sponsoring authorities may provide 15 rooms roughly of the size of 7m x 7m, which can accommodate at least 40 students per section. This accommodation is necessary to initially open the new Kendriya Vidyalaya and start classes I to V with single section each and also for the purpose of Principal room, staff room, Vidyalaya Office and accommodation for other miscellaneous activities of the Vidyalaya and for consequential growth for next 3-4 years.
The sponsoring Authority shall also provide safety certificate of the temporary building provided by them annually.
The sponsoring authority will undertake repairs/maintenance of the temporary building at its own cost till the Kendriya Vidyalaya is shifted in the permanent school building constructed by KVS.
In all the proposals which have already become feasible and duly approved by the BOG, KVS, the land extent already offered by the concerned sponsoring authority will not be changed in view of this revision of land norms. The new proposals including the proposals which are under various stages of examination are to be examined with reference to the revised norms hereafter.
A set of revised formats (Annexure-I.II & III) after incorporating the amendments as approved by the Board of Governors, KVS, in its 106th meeting ibid, are being circulated separately.
This may be circulated by Secretary Education of State to all the District Collectors and by Deputy Commissioners, KVS Regional Office to all Kendriya Vidyalayas functioning under their administrative jurisdiction and proposals for opening of new Kendriya Vidyalayas may be examined and submitted as per these revised norms. State Governments may submit their proposals through the concerned Regional Offices of KVS.
