MPs quota in KVs restored

However, he has surrendered his share to recommend students for admission. “In light of the sentiments expressed, we have decided to restore the provision for two nominations per member in Kendriya Vidyalayas, but I have surrendered my quota,” Sibal informed the Rajya Sabha on Friday.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangthan here on Thursday. “I have surrendered the minister’s and MP’s quota, but I will restore it for you,” he said.

The quota of admission for candidates recommended by MPs was started during the NDA government but was withdrawn after anomalies were noticed.  The demand for restoring the quota was echoed strongly by members of both Houses during the last two weeks.
