Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan Regional Office
Kendriya Vidyalaya, (Hindi: केन्द्रीय विद्यालय) (Hindi for
Central School) is a system of central government schools under the Ministry of
Human Resource Development, Government of India.
The system came into being in 1965 under the name "Central
Schools", and has been affiliated with CBSE since then. Later, the name was
changed to "Kendriya Vidyalaya". Its original objective was to educate children
of the Indian defence services personnel who are often posted to remote places.
With the army starting its own Army Public Schools, the service was extended
(but not restricted) to all central government employees. The uniform curriculum
followed by these schools all over India ensures that the children of government
employees do not face educational disadvantages when their parents are
transferred by providing a common syllabus and system of education.
A body known as the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (Central
School Organization) oversees the functioning of these schools. It operates from
its headquarters situated in New Delhi.
Presently, there are 1086 schools known as Kendriya
Vidyalayas, out of which 1083 are in India and three are located abroad. A total
of 10,58,450 students (as of 31.03.2011) and 49,286 employees (including
outsourced) are on rolls (as of 1.7.2011). These have been divided amongst 21
regions, each headed by an Assistant Commissioner.
The three Kendriya Vidyalayas outside India are in Kathmandu,
Moscow and Tehran . They are intended for children of Indian Embassy staff and
other expatriate employees of Government of India. One school in Tshimalakha,
Bhutan, was transferred to the Bhutanese government, thus having ceased to be a
Kendriya Vidyalaya (then known as Indo-Bhutan Central School (IBCS)) in 1989,
after one of the major Indo-Bhutan projects (The Chukhha Hydal power project)
was near completion and Indian government employees were gradually transferred
back to their home country.
