(b) Last date for admission for the children of the Embassy who come on transfer can be relaxed.

Automatic admission of children in the Kendriya Vidyalayas on the basis of transfer certificate issued by the CBSE affiliated schools run by Armed Forces (e.g Army, Air Force, Navy) will be entertained only if the parent has been transferred to that place or has desired to settle at the place after his retirement., provided no such school/class (run by Armed Forces) is available at new place of posting/settlement. This provision shall be applicable to schools run by Indian Coast Guard also. (F.110332/2008-KVS(Acad.) dt.01.07.2009)
It is clarified that above provisions are only for the wards of Defence personnel viz. sons & daughters only. This will not include the grand children of Defence personnel. Provisions of KVS admission guidelines including the eligibility criteria for age and marks will be followed in letter and spirit. Also the fee including VVN is to be paid from the month of admission of the child in the Kendriya Vidyalaya regardless of the fact that the fee for succeeding months have already been paid in the school from which TC has been issued for admission to KV. TCs issued by the CBSE schools of Defence Ministry/Deptts/Authority will be endorsed by the concerned Asstt. Commissioner of the region where admission is sought.

The Children and grand children of the serving and retired employees of KVS (Kendriya Vidyalayas, Regional Offices, ZIETs and KVS(Hqrs.) will be considered for admission at any time of the year irrespective of the class strength/year of transfer/recruitment. However, for class IX, the child has to clear the admission test.
The policy of automatic admission of pre primary students in class I has been withdrawn w.e.f. session 2008-09. Now all admissions in class I shall be treated as fresh admissions and shall be dealt with as per rules in vogue. (F.28 – 66/2006-KVS (Acad.) dt.13.03.2007)

Source – Table A-5, Primary Census Abstract
NST – No Scheduled Tribe notified.
NSC – No Scheduled Caste notified.

-* State/UT where SC and ST population put together is more than 50%.

Note :- The above revised norms may be made applicable to Kendriya Vidyalayas in the Civil sector except those meant for Para Military Forces.



The Kendriya Vidyalayas are placed under “specified category of schools” under section 2(p). Such schools are obliged to grant admission in class I to the extent of 25% of class strength to the children belonging to weaker section and disadvantaged group in the neighborhood and provide free and compulsory elementary education till its completion (Section 12(1)(c)).


1. Child belonging to disadvantaged group means a child belonging to the Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe, the socially and educationally backward class or such other group having disadvantage owing to social, cultural, economical, geographical, linguistic, gender or such other factor as may be specified by the appropriate government, by notification (Section 2(d)).

2. SC/ST, OBC not falling in the creamy layer, Child with special needs and suffering from disability as per disability Act or as defined by the concerned State Govt.


 Child belonging to weaker section means a child belonging to such parent or guardian whose annual income is lower than the minimum limit specified by the appropriate government, by notification (Section 2(e)).
 The income limit regarding economically weaker sections will be applicable as notified by the State Govt. concerned.


1. The KVS has already the provision for 22.5% reservation for SC/ST (May be more in some states as per Annexure IV).
2. This will be subsumed in the 25% provision to be made as per RTE Act. The shortfall will be made good as per the provisions of RTE Act.
3. At the moment 9 seats out of 40 are reserved for SC/ST. Now it will go up to 10 and the class strength for Class I to 41 to keep the number of seats for other categories same i.e. 31.
4. Admission to other categories to be done as per existing provision.


Since Kendriya Vidyalayas are located at places with varied density of population, they have been categorised as follows for determining the limits of neighbourhood:-

1 Major cities and Urban area
(All District Hqrs. & Metros) 5 kms. radius
2 Places and areas other than included in 1 above
8 kms radius

Note: 1. Proof of residence shall have to be produced by all applicants.
2. A self declaration from the parent for distance may also be accepted by furnishing an undertaking to this effect.


Every Kendriya Vidyalaya will constitute a committee for the purpose of monitoring a system of Draw of Lots to be held in Class I or in any other class wherever such stage is reached when all candidates of a particular category or having same number of transfers cannot be accommodated against available number of seats.

The committee will comprise the following five (05) members:-

1. Principal Convenor
2. Teacher Member (To be nominated by Principal)
3 & 4) Two parents (One lady ) Members(One parent has to be from the candidates to be admitted under section 12(1)(c).
5. VMC member Member(To be nominated by Chairman, VMC)

An additional 6th member can be nominated by the Principal from the students of class IX to XII wherever these classes exist.

This committee must be notified with the concurrence of Chairman, VMC, at least 5 days in advance of draw of lots and be displayed on school Notice Board.


 No fee to be charged from the children admitted under the 25% quota


One set of NCERT text books for his/her class to each child will be provided by the school and other expenses on account of note books, stationary, uniform and transport will be reimbursed on production of proper bills in respect of 25% of the children admitted under the Act subject to the ceiling prescribed (A separate letter will be issued on this subject).
