Navodaya Vidyalayas were started in 1986 to provide modern quality education to the Talented children predominantly from rural areas and that have produced, for many years, excellent results. NVS mentioned it as a proud moment for the organisation and congratulated all Navodaya students. There are 625 JNVs functioning across the country except Tamil Nadu. Entire cost of education and the living is incurred by the government.
