The proposal for opening of a new Kendriya Vidyalaya under civil sector has to be received from the concerned Ministry of Government of India / State Government / District authority / Organization of employees belonging to eligible categories, in the prescribed format, committing thereby availability of the requisite resources including 04 acres of land in Metropolitan City, 08 acres in Hilly and Urban Areas & 10 Acres in Semi-Urban/Rural Areas free of cost for setting up of a new KV.
