On Thursday, the new HRD minister Prakash Javadekar approved two new Kendriya Vidyalayas in Uttar Pradesh. One of the schools would be opened up in Rae Bareli. During the information interaction with reporters, the new HRD minister announced about approving these new schools.
He further denied that there is any political angle to it and said it has nothing to do with the upcoming UP elections. He insisted that the process was already on, while he took over as the HRD minister. The classes of Class XI students would be running in second shifts at the KVS. The Rae Bareli KVS was earlier proposed by the UPA II government as the 50 proposed sites for KVS extension.
Talking about the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test and the tussle between government and Supreme Court judgment, Javadekar said that the candidates who have appeared in NEET I and have applied for NEET II, but did not pay their fees, there candidature would stand cancelled. The registration number issued to candidates is a unique number that is given to candidates who have registered themselves with the system. He further stated that an Oversight Committee would undergo the NEET I results for candidates who have sat for NEET I and applied for NEET II, but couldn’t make it to the examination. Any such cases would be handled by the Oversight Committee and then the final results would be made public.
Apart from the two new Kendriya Vidyalayas, one would come up in Madhya Pradesh as well.
