The Union Cabinet today gave its approval for transfer on lease basis of 4.687 acres (instead of earlier approved 15.19 acres) of defence land in perpetuity to the Kendriya Vidyalaya (KVS) for construction of a Kendriya Vidyalaya (KV) school building and other related infrastructure required for proper functioning of the KV No. 2, Sohna Road, Gurgaon.
The land is to be transferred on lease basis at a nominal rent of Re. 1 per annum (without any premium) and in terms of existing Government policy on the subject.
The formalities relating to transfer of land to KVS would be completed within a period of three months. The KVS will thereupon construct school building and other facilities on the leased land as per its own specifications and at its own cost
The KV school in AFCCTS, with classes upto Class VIII, is presently functioning from a temporary building.
The transfer of land would enable the KVS to construct a new school building and associated infrastructure like laboratories, examination hall, auditorium, sports ground, and so on required for expansion from Class VIII to Class XII.
