An official statement said "The schools, which will be set up under the civil/defense sector for classes 1 to 5, will "provide quality education to approximately 50,000 students in addition to around 12 lakh students already studying in present KVs. The new KVs for which 650 regular posts will be created, will "address the educational needs of eligible students with high quality standards and will play a role of pace-setting educational institutions in the districts concerned."
