ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION

(SMT. ANNPURNA DEVI)

(a) Opening of new Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) and Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs) is a continuous process. At present, 134 KVs and 76 JNVs, including one additional JNV in Sitapur district (SC concentrated), are functioning in the State of Uttar Pradesh. 09 KVs in the districts namely Bhadohi, Mirzapur, Amethi, Varansi, Agra, Lakhimpur Khiri, Behraich, Fatehpur and Hamirpur (Bundelkhand) and 02 JNVs in the districts namely Sultanpur and Hapur have been established in the State of Uttar Pradesh during the last three years and the current year.

(b) to (d) The proposals for opening of new KVs are considered only if sponsored by Ministries or Departments of the Government of India / State Governments / Union Territories (UTs) Administrations and committing resources for setting up a new KV. The  proposals  received  from  various  sponsoring  authorities  found  fulfilling  the mandatory pre-requisites for opening of new KVs have to compete with other such proposals under the “Challenge Method” and subject to approval of the competent authority. KVs are not opened on the criteria of district.

The Navodaya Vidyalaya Scheme envisages opening of one Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV) in each district of the country. Opening of new JNVs is a continuous process which depends on the willingness of the concerned State Government / UT administration to make available requisite suitable land free of cost for construction of the permanent building and making available required temporary building, free of rent, to run the Vidyalaya till the permanent building is constructed. However, actual sanction and opening of new JNV depends on the availability of funds and approval by the Competent Authority. All the districts of State of Uttar Pradesh have been covered under the Navodaya Vidyalaya Scheme.

The 15 districts of Uttar Pradesh, including Bundelkhand Region of the State, namely Ambedkar Nagar, Amroha (J.P.Nagar), Bijnaur, Jaunpur, Kannauj, Kashiram Nagar (Kasganj), Kaushambi, Maharajganj, Mainpuri, Pratapgarh, Sambhal (Bhimnagar), Sant Kabir Nagar, Shamli (Prabudh Nagar), Banda and Jalaun do not have any KV. Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan has informed that KV in Banda District has been sanctioned in the year 2018 and could not be made functional as the State Government has not provided the requisite land and suitable rent free temporary building as per the norms. No definite time frame can be given in this regard.
