54 new Kendriya Vidyalayas to be opened this year

The Indian government will open 54 Kendriya Vidyalayas or Central Schools in the current academic year, with the largest number in Andhra Pradesh, Orissa and Uttar Pradesh.

The schools, to be opened by Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, are expected to cost Rs 927 crore.

Kendriya Vidyalaya or Central Schools are run by the central government and are meant to ease the education of children of transferable central government employees.

Kendriya Vidyalayas are opened when there is a concentration of at least 500 employees of Central Government or when there is minimum potential enrolment of children of specified categories which may be 200 or an average of 30 per class whichever is more.

The government had planned to open 500 new KVs in 2012-2017, but is now unlikely to meet that target.

The list of new KVs being added is below-
