Recognisation of JNV
In accordance with the National Policy of Education (1986) Government of India started Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs). Presently the JNVs
are spread in 27 States and 7 Union Territories. These are co-educational residential schools fully financed and administered by
Government of India through an autonomous organization, Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti. Admissions in JNVs are made through the
JAWAHAR NAVODAYA VIDYALAYA SELECTION TEST (JNVST) at Class VI.
The chain of Navodaya Vidyalayas is managed by Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti which is an autonomous organization of the Ministry of Human Resource
Development, and Department of Secondary Education and Higher Education.
The Samiti functions through an Executive Committee under the Chairmanship of the Union Minister of Human Resource Development. Union Minister of State for Education is the Vice- Chairman of the Samiti. The Executive Committee is assisted by Finance Committee, and Academic Advisory Committee in its functions.
The Samiti has eight Regional Offices for administration of Vidyalayas under their respective regions. For each Vidyalaya, there is a Vidyalaya Advisory Committee and a Vidyalaya Management Committee for the general supervision of the Vidyalaya. District Magistrate of the concerned district is the Chairman of the Vidyalaya level Committees with local educationists, public representatives and officials from the District as members.
