Times of India, April 30, 2014
BHUBANESWAR: The Centre has granted another Kendriya Vidyalaya (KV) to Odisha. The new school will open at Dharamgarh in Kalahandi district from the current academic year, government sources said.
The state school and mass education department on Tuesday asked the Kalahandi district administration to identify land for the KV at the earliest. The government order follows a letter from KV Sangathan (KVS), Raipur regional office, that necessary administrative sanction for the KV at Dharamgarh would be given after completing the process of transfer of land. After land is allotted, KV will start functioning from a temporary accommodation provided by the state government, said the letter from S S Rawat, deputy commissioner, KVS Raipur.
Construction of the permanent campus at the allotted land would start subsequently.
The proposed KV will initially function for the primary section, from Class I to Class V. It would be upgraded gradually. People in Kalahandi have long been asking for a KV at Dharamgarh, the second KV in Kalahandi district. There is another KV at the Kalahandi district headquarters in Bhawanipatna. Odisha has over 50 KVs under KVS Bhubaneswar and KVS Raipur regional offices.
