Selection of KV School in online application 2019-20
In KV Online Admission Instruction, Selection of KV School in online application 2019-20 is explained under the heading Choice of School
Choice of School
In this tab, upto three (3) choices of Kendriya Vidyalayas, without any preference between them, can be given. Thus, you can apply to upto three different Kendriya Vidyalayas using the same online application form. Each choice of Vidyalaya will be considered separately, independently and at par, without any notion of preference among your choice of Vidyalayas. In other words, it does not matter which Vidyalaya you indicate as “Vidyalaya 1”, “Vidyalaya 2” or “Vidyalaya 3” — your application for each one of them will be considered separately and independently of each other. If you wish to apply to less than three Vidyalayas, you can skip one or more tabs for choice of Vidyalayas. However, at least one choice of Vidyalaya must be given.
Vidyalaya-specific application details must be entered separately for each Vidyalaya. The basic information and parent details entered in the previous two sections/tabs will be shared with all Vidyalayas to which admission is being sought.
Please choose a tab labeled “Select Vidyalaya 1” / ”Select Vidyalaya 2” / ”Select Vidyalaya 3” to enter Vidyalaya-specific details.
Each of the Vidyalayas chosen in one application form will consider the admission application of the child independently. Thus, application to multiple Vidyalayas or the order in which the Vidyalayas are chosen in the application form DOES NOT affect the chances of admission to any of the Vidyalayas applied to.

Distance of Vidyalaya from residence: This will appear as a mandatory field in the form only for those who are applying in one of the following categories: Differently Abled, SC, ST, OBC (Non-creamy layer), Economically Weaker Section (EWS), Below Poverty Line (BPL). For all others, this field will not appear in the form. A child applying in one of the above categories will be automatically considered for admission in RTE category in a Vidyalaya she/he has applied to, if the child’s residence is within a specified distance from the Vidyalaya, as per KVS admission guidelines (see here).
Since Kendriya Vidyalayas are located at places with varied density of population, they have been categorised as follows for determining the limits of neighbourhood, for purposes of determining eligibility for admission in RTE category:
a.Major cities and urban areas (all district Headquarters & metros): 5 km radius from Vidyalaya
b.Places and areas other than included in above: 8 km radius from Vidyalaya
Therefore, a child is eligible for admission to a Vidyalaya in RTE category only if the child applies in one of the categories mentioned above and the child’s residence is no farther than 5km from the Vidyalaya in major cities and urban areas, and no farther than 8km from the Vidyalaya in all other areas.
Depending on the region (urban/rural) of the Vidyalaya (see point vi above), the following options will be displayed for filling in this field: For a Vidyalaya in an urban region, there options are
a. Less than or equal to 5 km
b. More than 5 km
For Vidyalaya in a rural region, the options are
a. Less than or equal to 8 km
b. More than 8 km
Choose the correct option for the radial distance of the chosen Vidyalaya from the child’s residence. Read Age Limit for KV Admission
