The HRD minister laid the foundation stone of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Shahdara on Thursday

Views of HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar:
He also emphasised the need for improving and providing quality education to students across the country on a priority basis.
Kendriya Vidyalayas are a synonym of quality education, as parents have a long cherished dream of their wards getting good education, said Javadekar
Stressing upon the sports activities, the minister said that sweating on the ground makes a better student.
In addition to education, sports activities are also an import aspect of education as the student learns and gains a feeling of collectiveness through sports after sweating and toiling hard, he said.
The Minister said that the land requirement in 6 Metro cities will now be 2.5 acre instead of 4 acre and 5 acre instead of 8 acre in other places across the country.
For providing better admission opportunity, the form filling process has been made online from this session so that people do not have to run from pillar to post to get their wards admitted in Kendriya Vidyalayas. He said a link in this regard has been put up on the website of Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan.
