CCEA approves setting up of 50 new Kendriya Vidyalayas
17 March 2017 Current Affairs: The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA), chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on 15 March 2017 approved the proposal for setting up around 50 new Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) under Civil or Defence Sector in the country.

The total project cost for the proposed 50 new Kendriya Vidyalayas is Rs 1160 crore based on Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) norms. 

Highlights : New KVs will be opened from classes I to V for which 650 regular posts shall be created in all 50 Kendriya Vidyalayas. 

When the school will grow up to class XII and becomes a full-fledged school with two sections in each class, then about 4000 regular posts of various categories will be created including 2900 teaching posts and about 1100 non-teaching posts. 

 When fully functional, these new KVs will provide quality education to approximately 50000 students in addition to the approximately 12 lakh students that are already studying in present KVs. 

The new KVs will address the educational needs of eligible students with high quality standards and will play a role of pace-setting educational institutions in the districts concerned. 

The Kendriya Vidyalayas are considered as model schools in the country in terms of physical infrastructure, teaching resources, curriculum and academic performance.

The main objective of KVs is to cater to the educational needs of children of transferable Central Government employees including Defence and Para-military personnel. 

These schools have consistently shown their excellent academic performance as evident from the Board Results of Class X and XII exams conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

At present, there are over 1100 functional Kendriya Vidyalayas including three international branches at Moscow, Kathmandu and Tehran.
