India is a pluralistic society with diverse culture and multiplicity of languages. There are 28 States and 7 union Territories and education being state subject, each one of them follows its own pattern and medium of instruction. It really becomes difficult for the children migrating from one state to the other to continue their studies. In most of the cases they have to start afresh.

It is in this context that the idea of encouraging the growth of secondary schools with the common syllabus and the medium of instruction for the benefit of the children of the central government employees liable to frequent transfers was mooted by the Second Central Pay Commission, which, inter-alia recommended provision of this facilities by the government for its employees so that the education of their children may not be disrupted due to their frequent and sudden transfers.

Accordingly, in November. 1962, the government of India approved the scheme of Kendriya Vidyalayas to cater to the educational needs to the children of Central government including Defence Personnel, who is exigency of their services are frequently transferred from one language area to the other. As a first step towards implementation of the scheme, 20 Regimental schools were taken over as “ Central Schools” or “Kendriya Vidyalayas” during the year 1963-64. Two year later on 15th December, 1965, an autonomous body named “Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan” was setup under the Society Registration Act of 1960 to open and manage Kendriya Vidyalayas. The number of Kendriya Vidyalayas has since gone upto 923 out of which 2 are functioning abroad at Kathmandu (Nepal) and Moscow (Russia). Through the focus still continues to be on the admission of the children of Central government employees, admission are open to other children as well, depending upon the availability of seats.
