Cabinet approves transfer of lease of defence land to KV Sangathan

June 16, 2011 - New Delhi

The Cabinet today approved the proposal of Ministry of Defence for transfer on lease basis of 15.19 acres of Defence land in perpetuity to Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) for construction of class rooms and staff quarters and provisioning of various other infrastructural amenities in Gurgaon.

The land will be transferred on lease basis at a nominal rent of rupee only 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 with a period of three months.

KVS will thereupon construct school buildings, etc. on the leased land as per their own specifications and with their own funds.

The transfer of land would facilitate creation of permanent school building and other related infrastructure like staff quarters, play ground at the KV school in Air Force Communication Centre and Transmitting Station (AFCCTS), Gurgaon.

This would provide a conducive environment for effective teaching and learning and also increased educational opportunities for the children of both defence personnel and civilians in the area.
