New Delhi: In its bid to improve the defence land management, the Central Government has decided to allocate over 24 acres of defence land to Kendriya Vidyalaya. Under the proposal, 8.90 acres of land of Chakeri Air Force Station in Kanpur and 15.19 acres of land in Gurgaon on Sohna Road would be allotted to the body of Kendriya Vidyalaya.

According to the decision of the Union Cabinet headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, the land on lease would be transferred at a token price of Rs 1 per month to the school authorities.

“The land transfer formalities will be completed within three months to enable the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan to construct school according to the requirement,” says a government official.

After the land transfer formalities in Sohana road, school building and staff quarters will be allowed to get constructed at KV No 2. Similarly, the Central school’s building will be constructed at KV No 3 in Chakeri.

Both the schools will provide educational opportunities for the children of both defence personnel and civilians in the area.
