Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya - Insight


Navodaya schools

Navodaya schools was formulated in 1986 when Rajiv Gandhi was the Prime Minister.

It envisaged that a model school would be set up in every district of the country. The schools are entirely financed by the Centre, Rs 2,000 crore being sanctioned in the first phase. Barring West Bengal and Tamil Nadu, all states accepted the plan.

It was suicidal on the part of West Bengal to have turned down the idea. The state has slipped to the 11th position in terms of education. The then education minister, Kanti Biswas, opposed the scheme on the plea that it would create an elite class.

Tamil Nadu did not accept it because the medium of instruction was Hindi along with English. Mr Biswas suggested that regional languages should be the medium at least up to class VIII.


National integration


The refusal of West Bengal and Tamil Nadu to be part of the scheme has disappointed the Navodaya authorities. Among the Leftist states, Kerala has 13 Navodaya schools for 14 districts and Tripura four such schools in as many districts.


The objections raised by West Bengal and Tamil Nadu are not convincing. JNVs have adopted the three-language formula. Admission tests for class IV can be given in 20 languages, including Bengali and Tamil. The medium of instruction is in the language of the state up to class VIII. Upwards of class IX the medium is Hindi for social science and humanities and English for a science streams. It is not true that only Hindi has been accepted as the medium of instruction

It was definitely a blunder on the part of the CPI-M-led government in West Bengal. The state government may not have considered the fact that 77.19 per cent of the students of JNVs are from rural areas and only 22.81 per cent from urban areas. Twenty four per cent of the students belong to SC and 14.79 per cent to ST categories. Such students in West Bengal and Tamil Nadu have been deprived of the opportunities of quality education essentially because of wrong policies of their governments. The net loss these two states have suffered over the past two decades is tremendous.

Clearly, West Bengal's school education department was short-sighted. What does the Left Front government mean by an "elite class''? Class divisions in society are inherent. Marx divided society on the basis of economic power ~ the bourgeois and the proletariat class. In between there were the petty bourgeois ~ teacher, doctors, small traders, lawyers, government employees etc. In our society there are numerous classes. Every group of professionals constitutes a certain class. The highly educated people belong to one class and they do not readily interact with those they consider intellectually inferior. The workers, farmers, teachers, lawyers, ordinary government employees, senior government officials, ministers, politicians, cinema actors and actresses have separate social groups beyond which they do not or cannot wade. Bengal's communists have not been able to dismantle this social stratification.

The thrust of the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas is to select talented rural children as the target group for imparting quality education, hitherto the preserve of well-do-do families in urban areas. Proper education would enable rural students to compete with their urban counterparts on an equal footing. The National Education Policy, 1986, envisaged the setting up of residential schools to be called Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNV) that would tap the best of rural talent.

There are 551 Navodaya schools in the country, benefiting 80,000 students. Thirty-three thousand pupils are admitted every year through admission tests. Thirty-three per cent of the seats are reserved for girls. Thirty per cent of the students in a Hindi-speaking area have to study for at least a year in a non-Hindi state. An equal percentage of students in a non-Hindi area have to migrate to a school in a Hindi-speaking state. Thus these schools are a symbol of national integration.

JNVs are free residential co-educational institutions. Expenses on food, lodging, uniforms, textbooks, daily-use items, stationery, travel and medicines are borne by the central government. In states, where the climate is cold, the allocation per student is Rs 7,650; in the rest of the country it is Rs 7,350. The state has to offer 30 acres for a new school or a rent-free building for three to four years.

The Navodaya schools are under CBSE much like the several central schools in both these states.

If implemented, West Bengal was entitled to 18 Navodaya schools and Tamil Nadu 22. The investment in West Bengal over the past two decades would have totalled Rs 1,000 crore. These schools could have provided employment to teachers.

Ancillary units such as the suppliers of stationery and laboratory equipment would have also benefited. Shops in the vicinity of these schools would have offered scope for self-employment. In a word, apart from imparting instruction, the Navodaya schools can also gear up the rural economy.

There are many renowned private, but recognised government-aided English and Bengali medium schools in West Bengal where the poor cannot afford to send their children. They are a separate category of schools that are partially funded by the government.

Therefore, the plea that the Navodaya schools will create an elite class is ridiculous. Those who study in expensive schools, colleges and universities in Kolkata and Chennai also belong to the so-called elite class. Have the two governments de-recognised those institutions? The concept of an elite class is a misnomer. There is no logical force in the decision to reject the idea of Navodaya schools.

 

Beyond redemption

In December 1919 Lenin lamented, "We know we cannot establish a socialist system now. God grant that it may be established in our children's time or perhaps our grandchildren's time."

The blunder has ultimately been realised by the West Bengal government. Kanti Biswas, the non-performing education minister, was not given nomination in the last assembly elections. The decision was correct, but the damage that had been done to the state is beyond redemption.

The state government has now changed its earlier policy and agreed somewhat reluctantly to cooperate with the Centre and establish Navodaya schools. Eight such schools have been set up in the state and six more have been sanctioned However, these schools have provision only up to class VI. Four districts are yet to be covered owing to lack of initiative.

The network cannot be expanded without the assistance of the local administration. Though West Bengal has relented, Tamil Nadu is yet to give its approval. However, it is better to be late than never.

Special Navodaya Schools to be set up in SC-dominated villages


A group of ministers  has recommended that 136 Special Navodaya Schools (SNV) be set up in SC-dominated villages. For the Scheduled Tribe, it has pegged the SNVs at 72.

After analysing the 2001 census, the Committee of Ministers for Dalit Affairs proposed that a special plan be drawn to ensure Dalit children have access to "quality education". To that end, it has suggested SNVs — where 60 per cent of the seats would be earmarked only for SC/ST children — be set up in villages where SC/ST population is 40 per cent or more.

On the economic front, the panel has backed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's proposal to extend the Madhya Pradesh model of reserving one-third of government's requirement from SCs and STs.

Navodaya's contribution to India

There are two sets of educational initiatives have succeeded wonderfully.

First being the IITs, which have given India a brand name globally.

The second is the Navodaya Vidyalaya spread all over India. As of now approx 485, Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas or JNVs are spread acrosss Indian, these schoold admit students from rural background. The success of Navodays is from the fact that the success rate of JNVs students is much greater than the average in the CBSE examinations.

The JNV students are better compared to best public school students.
 
The Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya admit students from class VI, and they complete their entire pre-university (till XII ) schooling in Navodaya Vidyalaya. Students are given free food, uniforms, stationary and study in residence. Govt. is giving admissions to 32,000 students annually, there are currently 1.58 lakh students in the jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya family. A sum of Rs 65000 is spent per student annually.
 
To bring out best talents from Students, India's top industrial houses should sponsor a JNV each, and should fund the money to the Government to establish and run those schools. this can make District/ jnv ratio to 1:1 ( one JNV in each district).

SHORTAGE OF NCERT BOOKS in Navodaya

NCERT is mandated to print and supply textbooks for the schools affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) including KV and Navodaya Vidyalayas.
 
 
Some States have been given, on their request, copyright permission to reprint some/all NCERT textbooks and at times, delay in printing and distribution of these books by them may result in students of these States purchasing NCERT textbooks meant for CBSE affiliated schools.
 

Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti Press Release

            A Committee under the Chairmanship of Shri Y.N. Chaturvedi was constituted in June, 2001 to review the Management structure and operating mechanism of Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti.  The summary of recommendation of the Y.N. Chaturvedi Committee in respect of the capacity of the Navodaya Vidyalayas in providing quality education, is Annexed.

Sr.No.

Recommendations of the Committee

1.

The academic performance of students of Navodaya Vidyalayas as indicated by the result of Class X and XII board examinations of CBSE has been very good.  The pass percentage for Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya students appearing in CBSE examination for Class X is 20% more than for all students and 10% more for Class XII.   However, performance in the Board Examination is not the only criterion for judging academic performance of Navodaya Vidyalayas.  

2.

It has been ascertained by the study conducted by the IIM, Ahmedabad that there is general appreciation for the educational facilities offered by the Navodaya Vidyalayas with about 80% students and their families being appreciative of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas. Another indicator about the success of the Scheme of Navodaya Vidyalayas is that 75% of the students passing out of Navodaya Vidyalayas have persued higher education.

3.

Judging by the trend of the recent years, about 18 students compete for each seat in Navodaya Vidyalayas.  The large number of applicants speaks of the success of the Scheme of Navodaya Vidyalayas and it is also indicative of the faith the admission system evokes among people.

4.

The criticism of some of the selected students having inadequate language skill seems to have been over stated.  With block-wise reservation, this should be accepted because standards are known to be low in remote areas of many districts.   The standard of language skills in such cases does not justify any major change in the testing mechanism.  The Navodaya Vidyalayas will have to assume responsibility for improving language skills of those students who are weak in language.

5.

It is felt that the problem of substantial number of students dropping out in various classes is real though the phenomenon of dropout does not necessarily indicate deficiencies in the scheme of Navodaya Vidyalayas.   It is recommended that Navodaya Vidyalayas created at larger cost should not be allowed to remain substantially unutilized due to vacant seats remaining unfilled in higher classes.

6.

Although the results of board examinations for Class X & XII indicate that the quality of teaching in Navodaya Vidyalayas is of acceptable standard, attention needs to be placed to learning oriented which does not seem to have been attended to so far.

7.

The language learning is presently dominated by emphasis on writing skills as this determines the marks that can be obtained in examinations.  The speaking and reading skills are presently neglected.   It is recommended that for every class sufficiently large number of books could be identified and divided into 4 or 5 sub categories out of which each students should be asked to choose one book from each category which he should read during 3-6 months and present a summary in a seminar consisting of his class.   This would improve learning horizon of the student and it will progressively improve his capacity to understand and assimilate.  Through seminar presentation his communication skill and speaking skill will improve.   Speaking skill is, particularly, important in regard to III language.

8.

The teaching method needs urgent reform and teachers should be influenced through teacher training and school supervision to shift from lecturing to talking mode.

9.

Although there is wide spread perception among teachers that they are over loaded but a study of a daily schedule does not indicate over loading.  It has been noted that Samiti has a tendency of prescribing everything which seems good.   This can only mean that either student will not pursue most of the activities seriously or they will be over loaded.

10.

It is recommended that various co-curricular activities will be divided into 3 or 4 groups like one group for creative activities, one for physical activities etc.  Each student should be asked to choose one activity in a group for participation and he should be assessed only in regard to that activity.

11.

It is recommended that for providing more meaning to socially useful productive work, students in each class should be divided into groups of 5/6 students each.  They should be given basic implements and should be asked to attend to campus/hostel maintenance and cleanliness under supervision.   It should include plantation in the campus and its maintenance.  The students can be assigned various duties by a rotation.   This concept should be extended to minor repairs through students in secondary classes, though they should not be assigned repair work which may be hazardous.

12

.The NVS has made large effort in promoting computer literacy.  However, there is no syllabus or textbook for computer literacy so far.  The draft syllabus indicates an unrealistically high level of skills to be attained by students.   This is unrealistic.  In computer literacy it will be sufficient if students are taught to operate PCs, are above to input data and take out printouts.   The students should be taught to handle windows software which will serve most of his needs.  They should also learn to send and receive e-mail and access internet.   It will be more than sufficient if each student is taught to learn this much but in a thorough manner.

13.

The Navodaya Vidyalayas have been supposed to be pace-setting institutions but no concrete programme in this regard has emerged so far.  It is recommended that a small number of concrete steps will be preferable to talking about a large number of general ideas.

14.

An effective teacher training programme is essential for ensuring excellence of Navodaya Vidyalayas.  However, it is unfortunate that no teachers training institution has been set up so far for Navodaya Vidyalayas.   The teachers of Navodaya Vidyalayas cannot benefit from DIETs or from State colleges for teacher education.

15.

It is recommended that teacher training institutions on regional basis should be set up for Navodaya Vidyalayas jointly with Kendriya Vidyalayas or may be separately for each.  In these institutions training should be provided in subject matter   with every training course having a common component consisting of reform of teaching process, Yoga, value education and computer literacy.  

16.

Sports and physical education is important and desirable.  However, it should be realized that because of the pressure to prepare for employment after completion of studies, performance in examinations will remain a dominat concern of all students.   Therefore, students should not be expected to achieve excellence in sports.  It should be considered sufficient if they participate regularly and with enthusiasm in sports.

17.

Teaching yoga is good for more than one reason.  However, NVS needs to be careful while prescribing yoga for individual schools.  While yoga instructors are available in plenty but the quality of their yoga education/training is not acceptably good in many cases.   If such teachers are selected, they themselves become a problem.  Therefore, NVS should carefully screen yoga institutions and approve only those where teaching standards are acceptable.   Only products of such institutions should be eligible to be engaged as yoga teachers.  The yoga should be introduced in Navodaya Vidyalayas in stages i.e. only to the extent good yoga teachers become progressively available.

Intel supporting Navodaya Vidyalaya schools

Ashutosh Chadha, India Education Manager, Intel India. believes that Students must be armed with 21st century skills that will ensure greater employability and economic prosperity.
 
 
He said that in the community area space, Intel provide training for underprivileged youth in the 8-16 age bracket that aims to make them effective communicators and do research in their own small way without even having gone to school.
 
Intel is doing this in Mamallapuram in Kerela with the Navodaya Vidyalaya schools.

We are piloting a high-level programme in India titled "Teaching Thinking With Technology," a completely software-agnostic programme that is designed to drive students to high levels of thinking related to things around them. It is a lot like spatial reasoning.  says Mr. Chadha.

Navodayites plea rejected.

Navodayites plea rejected.

Arun Kumar of Sulakpet in Sindhanur of Raichur district and two other students had moved the court against the denial of seats under the rural quota category.

Arun said he had studied in Sindhanur, (a rural area) from 1st standard to 5th standard, he later went to Navodaya Vidyalaya at Mudgal, Raichur district. he claimed he was eligible for benefit under the rural quota.  After passing the 12th standard from the Navodaya Vidyalaya, he appeared for the CET in 2006 and secured the 7,726th rank in medicine and 11,610 rank in engineering.
 
He said that though he was eligible for benefit under rural quota, the CET Cell refused to entertain such an application when he went for counselling on July 5, 2006 for medical seats. He was, however, given a seat under the Scheduled Caste (general) category in medicine.

He said he wanted to appear for counselling for engineering seats which commences from Saturday.

More Navodayas on the way.

Government accords priority to these districts in implementation of  Schemes/Programmes for educational development. 
 
Out of 105 Special Focus Districts, 87 and 80 Districts respectively have been covered under the Schemes of Navodaya Vidyalayas and Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalayas.

65 students fall sick - Jawahar Navoday Vidyalaya


The students studying in Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Ramkhiriya are suffering from water borne diseases.


There is panic situation in the school as the large number of students have fallen sick all at sudden.


The school children in the whole year drink water of a huge pit of NMDC diamond mines. In these circumstances it became our helplessness to provide water from the pit of NMDC.
HRD ministry spends lakhs of rupees for the facilities of these schools but the students of this school are unable to get safe drinking water. There are better facilities like meal, boarding , reading and sports in the school premises but in last two decades the administration was unable to provide proper medical and drinking water facilities here.


The students of the school are forced to drink impure water which leads towards the water borne diseases. As a result the students who come healthy from their homes but here they fall sick.

The parents who came to know about their ward's illness they took their children with them for treatment.

Sonia Gandhi rememberd Navodaya Vidyalaya

Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Monday expressed that Indian values, secular teachings and social harmony should be inculcated in schools while she was inaugurating the Sanskaar Valley School on the outskirts of Bhopal.

she said that it is a delight to visit such schools which promise to give the youth what they deserve,  The Sanskaar Valley School, promoted by the Rs 1,500-crore Dainik Bhaskar group jointly with the Shardadevi Charitable Trust, is a co-education day-cum-boarding secondary school.

NAVODAYA Vidyalaya Employees Welfare Samiti will raise some issues before CAT (Central Administrative Tribunal)

According to Malay Pathak, President of NAVODAYA Vidyalaya Employees Welfare Samiti, employees of Vidyalayas were reeling under pressure due to extra workload.

he added that such conditions are in all the branches of total 544 Navodaya Vidyalayas across the country, separate staff should work in residential schools and teacher should discarge from duties after teaching hours, but most of us knew that teachers of Navodya Vidyalayas were being used as hostel wardens in the name of housemasters. One keynote is that the Navodya Vidyalya Samiti had not fixed hours for teachers or other employees.

QUOTAS - cure is worse than the disease."

"QUOTAS - this cure is worse than the disease."

( this is a slogan at on the wall at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) )

Eventhough the srike was called off, we all now knew that the this campaing got more hits then any thing in last 10 years, under the banner of Youth for Equality - a forum initiated by students of five medical colleges. one of the spokesman ( for Youth for Equality) said that while the doctors had decided to call off, Delhi University, IIT - Delhi and many more will would continue the protests.

Now , At some distance from this protest some held their own campaining place too, Calling themselves "Youth for Equal Opportunity",
Dr. Sukhbir Singh Badhal is one of them.

Badhal is a SC member a village in Haryana. His father was earning between Rs.60 and Rs.100 a day. Badhal got into a Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, run under a scheme started by the Rajiv Gandhi government to help under-privileged children, and graduated with a specialisation in life sciences. He then completed his MBBS from a government college in Rohtak, and is at present in his final year in post-graduate specialisation in Lab Medicine on a reserved seat.

Badhal says that his career improved the lives of most members of his family. His younger brothers can now afford to attend private school, and his father no longer has to work as a labourer. His companion at the rally, Dr. Sandeep Sabarwal, is another example of how reservation works. An OBC member from Sonipat district in Haryana, Sabarwal also made it to an undergraduate medical college in Rohtak through a reservation. He topped the general category All India Post Graduate Entrance Examination for a Masters in Dental Surgery last year. "As AIIMS had no reservation for OBCs, I gave the General Exam and topped it," he says. "But without reservation in my undergraduate course, I would never have made it." Unfortunately, the narrow parameters of the reservation debate have ensured that reserved category students shall continue to fight accusations of inability and incompetence. "If you get into college through reservation and do badly, it's because you don't deserve to be here," remarks an OBC student. "And if you do well, then you are not `truly backward'. It seems we are incompetent by definition."

Navodaya Vidyalaya - No Tobacco Day:

Navodaya Vidyalaya - No Tobacco Day:

70 Adolescents Wowed to adhere to "No Tobacco" on the international Tobacco Day in Chandigarh

Renu Gandhi, programme coordinator from CACEE ( Centre for Adult, Continuing Education and Extension ) explained that the aim was to guide the students about the un-seen issues which they may face at their later stage. Evil can grow form Tobacco to Drinks, then drugs and may be to end of life in a miserable way.

It is not unusual for youth to take these sturdy things especially when they are in hostel / boarding school and are not within eyesight of their parents, Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya being a hostel school and student making this pledge makes a good effect on society, Renu also stated that this kind of programmes would help youth to control their behaviour and not to indulge in risky activities and it will increase cultural values and discipline among adolescents.

Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya is a co-education schooling - boarding system founded by late Mr. Rajiv Gandhi, It is one of the best schools in India providing free education to rural children and make career.

I was a student of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya - Aliabada - Jamnagar - Gujarat , and those 5 years in JNV were most important days in my life

Navodaya XII Results - Girls Eats Boys

Navodaya & arjun singh's reservations

ARJUN Singh, we are told by his fans in the Congress, possesses one sharp political brain. L K Advani, his disciples in the BJP would tell you, is a genuinely creative political strategist.
Like an old couple hoping to rediscover some spark of romance by spending their 50th wedding anniversary in the same place as their honeymoon, Advani and Arjun Singh are trying to recreate the ‘magic’, such as it was, of 1989 when that hopeless cliche, ‘mandal and kamandal’, hijacked our politics. India lost three full years, filled by such forgettable interregnums as V P Singh and Chandra Shekhar, just when the Cold War was ending, China and Russia were reforming, and the world was brimming with new ideas and opportunities. To be fair to him, Advani, or Rajnath Singh in his wake, is not talking obviously of the temple. Arjun Singh is more direct, first pushing for reservations in private institutions and now slicing away half of the IITs and IIMs for reserved quotas. But his desperate bid to re-invent himself as VP Singh Mark II will not benefit his party. It will damage it as much as VP Singh Mark I did. Given today’s messy politics nobody wants to vote against any idea of increasing reservations. Most electoral hotspots of the country have OBC leaders of their own: Lalu and Nitish in Bihar, Mulayam in Uttar Pradesh. Barring Vajpayee’s late dash in his last two years, with his creative foreign policy and some aggressive reform, the BJP’s rise in power marked the end of its political imagination. If there is another national election this year, as well might be the case, provided the latest gang-up gathers strength, the Congress needs a slogan, a programme, an agenda that will counter the appeal of the Left, the Right, and the third front satraps. Unlike the BJP, which at least has some loyal NDA allies, the Congress may have none except, maybe, Lalu and DMK. So what does its one-man brains trust do, but dust up an old divisive idea from fellow thakur, VP Singh. It is dangerous for India if its two largest parties, its only two national parties who even today share nearly 300 seats in Parliament and, in a twisted way, together represent the will of a vast majority, fall back on these outdated ideas just because they are short on intellect and imagination.
In today’s India, you can no longer sway voters with talk of the past. So while the Congress governments were defeated in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, the voter defied anti-incumbency to re-elect Sheila Dikshit in Delhi because he thought she had performed. That this was no isolated shift and that this new mood also cut into the Mandalised heartland, became evident in Bihar where the voter stormed out of the ossified caste-based trenches to vote Lalu-Rabri out. And what’s the slogan that Nitish Kumar used? More reservations? Temples? I heard him speak at rallies countering Lalu’s favourite war cry of empowerment to the downtrodden: apni laathi ko tel pilao (season your sticks with oil). Laathi ko tel nahin, kalam ko syahi pilane ka samay hai (don’t soak your lathi in oil, time has come to fill your pens with ink), he said, because it is education and knowledge that will bring you equality. I know a dozen political pundits, experts on fine caste divisions, exponents of AJGAR, MAJGAR, KHAM, MY, all kinds of dreadful acronyms representing caste combinations, laughing at Nitish then. This India is waiting for somebody who will give them an idea, a dream, even a slogan, a better future as Indians, not as Muslims or Brahmins, or Yadavs or Dalits. Elections between 2003 and ‘05 have shown the politics of blood feuds is now dying. The Congress has to remember nearly 40 per cent of Indians who vote in 2009 would have been born after Indira Gandhi’s assassination. And the BJP, that 30 per cent would have been born after Bofors broke, and nearly 20 per cent after the Mandir-Mandal movements of 1989.
Can the Congress tell Arjun Singh to get off the reservation horse and get on the equality wagon by promising, instead, to build ten Kendriya Vidyalayas and Navodaya Vidyalayas, one of the greatest contributions of Rajiv Gandhi to India’s future, in every state? There is no percentage in this politics for either national party. National parties, by definition, cannot fight small guerrilla skirmishes and win.

Navodaites in IAS - Civil services

Unlike lots of successful individuals with a relatively good socio-economic background, Pravin Kumar, a son of a farmer, cracked the UPSC civil service examination securing an all-India rank of 19 this year.
Although Pravin has no lineage of bureaucracy, this “self-motivated” individual wants all but to serve the society, especially the rural areas, with the “power” he would have being an IAS officer. In fact, Pravin had cleared the examination — considered the toughest in the country — ranking 83 in 2003 and opted for Indian Revenue Service (Custom and Central Excise). Pravin appears indebted to his brother-in-law, Ramjivan Rai — a teacher in H.E. High School here — as he repeatedly mentioned his sister and Rai’s contribution to his success.
An alumnus of Navodaya Vidyalaya, Banka, and DPS, Bokaro, Pravin has been a good student from his childhood. “Singing,” pat comes the reply from the Ghulam Ali and Mehdi Hassan fan, who has reportedly impressed the members at the board with his knowledge of ghazals.
Pravin, who got married to Smriti — an MBA working in Mumbai — in December last year, leaves a message for the IAS aspirants: “Set your goal, have passion and right approach towards the goal and honest labour.”

Mess Facilities - Being residential schools proper mess arrangements are of great importance in our Navodaya Vidyalayas. The Mess is run by the Vidyalaya itself under the overall direction of the Principal and with the help and guidance of the Chairman of the Vidyalaya Management Committee. The Mess Committee consists of the Principal as Chairman and two House Masters (one male and one female) two boys and two girls as members and the Catering Assistant as Member Secretary. Where there is no Catering Assistant one male House Master is the convener of the Committee. The Samiti has sanctioned posts of Cook and Mess Helpers for Vidyalayas. Principals are free to appoint a few more helpers on part time/ casual basis.

OPENING Of JNVs - The original objective of providing one Navodaya Vidyalaya in each district, has been actively pursued. 509 Vidyalayas are sanctioned at present in 34 states and UTs excluding two State Level JNVs sanctioned at Sirsa (Haryana) and Allahabad (U.P.). Out of these, 485 schools are presently functional.



15 new JNVs have been sanctioned in the year 2003-2004. It is proposed to open 100 new JNVs during the rest of X Plan period, bringing the total coverage to 568 districts..



The opening of a Navodaya Vidyalaya is based on the proposal from the concerned State/UT Governments offering 30 acres of suitable land free of cost, sufficient temporary building and other infrastructure free of rent or on permanent basis.



The coverage of Navodaya Vidyalaya in educationally backward districts has been considerably high.Out of the States with literacy rate below 50%, 100% coverage has been made in Orissa, Jammu & Kashmir, Karnataka, Manipur, Dadra & Nagar Haveli, Madhya Pradesh, Meghalaya and Rajastan with the reference to the number of districts existing at the commencement of VIIIth plan.
