Author: Desk March 16, 2017
HRD minister Prakash Javadekar has urged MPs to recommend ten children from families with income below Rs 5 lakh for admission to Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) across the country.
KVs are centrally funded schools that provide quality education at affordable rates in the country.
To ensure quality education Prakash Javadekar also asked parliamentarians to recommend the children to different KVs instead of cramming them in one such institution.
Under the special privilege quota for parliamentarians in KVs, each member can refer 10 cases for admission — over and above the class strength in an academic year.
To safeguard in no delay in admissions, MPs have been asked to send their recommendations by the first week of April. The last date for submitting the names is June 30.
