Are you looking for good school for your child? Yes,of course. Every parents do, because education plays a vital role in our child’s development,so good school is most important.

Unfortunately, The cost of getting a decent education in our country is skyrocketing. Millions of Indian parents are paying very large part of their income on general education. This starts right from nursery level.

Parents has to spend money on donations,fees than the price of degrees at universities and other higher study institutes. But,Parents of talented students which are not able to or dont want to spend cost for the country’s abysmal education system are getting relief by taking admission of their child in JAWAHAR NAVODAYA VIDYALAYA.

I am very proud to be alumnus of JNV. JNVs exist all over India. Tamilnadu is only state without JNV due to anti Hindi movements.Any way that is unfortunate matter of Tamilnadu . Other parts are blessed with these schools.

JNVs are run by Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti,an autonomous organisation under the ministry of HRD. Here,Parents will able to find that every trait which should be there in ideal education system.

First thing which will relief all parents are its fees structure.

Details of Fees Structure ( includes education,boarding,lodging,Uniform,textbooks,stationary  etc.)

  1. VI to VIII- No fees
  2. IX TO XII- RS. 200 per month for above BPL(below poverty line) boys,No fee for girls.

Now ,Parents will have question,what is the fees structure for primary classes???? Students get admission only from Class VI.Students has to qualify Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Selection Test (JNVST ) by CBSE to get admission in JNV of their district.

JNVST select 80 students meritwise for each JNV.Lateral entry admissions are also there sometimes to fill vacant positions in CLASS IX or XI. Reservation is there for ST and SC class only 75 %  are for rural area students, 25% for urban area. 33% for female students, 3% for differently-abled students.

JNVs are fully residential(Teaching and non-teaching Staff also) and co-educational schools affiliated to CBSE, new Delhi.

Benefits of Studying in JNVs

  1. Expert Teachers 

    Navodaya teachers are recruited through highly competitive recruitment exam. They are well experienced and have degrees in their field and passionate about their subjects.

    Unlike other schools,Teachers reside with students so they identified the capabilities and accordingly imparted knowledge and guide them for their bright future.

    I have spend my life’s seven years with these teachers. Now, I m looking for this type of teachers outside navodaya campus for my munchkin but its next to impossible. They gives family feelings and parental love in campus.
