In the last two years of the pandemic a lot of people lost their lives and a lot of kids lost both of their parents, recently according to the centre's directive the decision to give admission to the students who have lost both of their parents to covid was taken under the PM Cares for Children Scheme. These kids will be given admission in different classes according to their age and their education throughout will be taken care of, i.e they will receive free of cost education from classes 1st to 12th.
The decision was taken to ensure that they receive proper care, providing them a safe environment which ensures their wellbeing through health insurance, through the education that they receive enabling them to be self-sufficient in the future. The admission under this category would be given by the KV concerned on the recommendation of the district magistrate of the district concerned.
