ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF
HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT
(DR. SHASHI THAROOR)

(a) to (d): The expansion of the Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) / Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs) in the country is a continuous process. During the 12th Five Year Plan, it is envisaged to open 500 new KVs and 378 JNVs. But the Government has been unable to grant formal approval for the setting up of any of these new Vidyalayas in view of the paucity of funds. The locations of all these Vidyalayas, including those to be opened in Karnataka, will be decided as and when the approval of the competent authority is received and when the necessary funds are made available.
