Kendriya Vidyalas to scrap quota system in admissions

New Delhi: Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangthan (KVS) is understood to have decided to scrap the discretionary quota system in admission of students.

The meeting of the Board of Governors of KVS, chaired by HRD Minister Kapil Sibal, is understood to have decided to end the discretionary quota enjoyed by the Minister and the MPs, sources said.

Sibal, who is the chairman of the BoG of KVS, has been supporting the scrapping of the quota system in admission to make it fair.

As per the quota system, while the HRD minister can recommend names of candidates for 1200 seats under his discretionary quota, an MP can recommend two candidates for admission into the central schools.

While a Lok Sabha MP can recommend two candidates from his constituency, a Rajya Sabha MP can recommend two candidates from anywhere from the state which is represented by him.
