Easier For Only Girl Child To Join KV
New Delhi, Mar 16 (UNI) Girls who are their parents' only child will be admitted in Kendriya Vidyalayas from class VI onwards even if they do not qualify in admission test-- provided they have minimum qualifying marks, it was announced today.
The facility will be available up to a limit of two girls per class over and above the sanctioned strength in KV Sangathan schools, a Human Resource Development Ministry statement said.
Last week, the HRD Ministry said that class VI to XII KVS girls who are their parents' only child do not have to pay fees.
The decision to give single girl children special consideration in admission to KVS has been taken by HRD Minister Arjun Singh in his capacity as KVS Chairman, it said.
Also if single female children fail to get admission in class I, up to two of them will be admitted over and above the sanctioned intake in each section of the class, the HRD statement said.
In making such selections, preference will be given to applicants as per priority categories laid down in the admission guidelines, the statement said.
