ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT (DR. SHASHI THAROOR)

(a) & (b) No, Sir. There is no scholarship scheme for the students belonging to any specific category as the Kendriya Vidyalayas are substantially supported by the Government, due to which the fee structure of these Vidyalayas is much lower as compared to other schools.

(c) & (d) Yes, Sir. The Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan has laid down the following priorities in granting admissions under the Civil/Defence Sector:-

(i) Children of transferable and non-transferable Central Government employees including ex-servicemen. This will also include children of foreign national officials, who come on deputation or transfer to India on invitation by the Govt. of India.

(ii) Children of transferable and non-transferable employees of Autonomous Bodies/Public Sector Undertakings/Institute of Higher Learning of the Government of India.

(iii) Children of transferable and non-transferable State Government employees.

(iv) Children of transferable and non-transferable employees of Autonomous Bodies / Public Sector Undertakings/Institute of Higher Learning of the State Governments.

(v) Children from any other category including the children of foreign nationals who are located in India due to their work or for any personal reasons. They would be considered only in case there are no Indian Nationals waitlisted for admission.
