KVS Admission 2023-23: Registration for Class 1 Start in February 2023

Reserved seats are vacant and registered candidates are not available

To fill the vacant quota of reserved seats for RTE/SC/ST/OBC, a separate advertisement will be issued again for admission by the concerned Kendriya Vidyalaya in the month of August. Only Particular category candidates can apply offline Form for admission to this reserved quota. The candidates thus registered offline may be admitted based on their Priority Category to fulfil the shortfall of reservation quota.

Even after going through the above exercise, if these seats remain vacant, then the following procedure may be adopted:

{a} In no case the seats reserved as per RTE will be de-reserved.

{b} In case of vacant seats of SC/ST: Vacant SC seats may be filled with ST or vice versa, only if total SC and ST candidates admitted taken together fall short of total reserved seats of SC and ST taken together. This aggregation may be obtained by counting all the admitted SC and ST candidates of all the categories.

You can understand with this example: In a single section KV total SC and ST seats are 9 (6 SC + 3 ST). Now suppose 8 SC and 1 ST is already admitted and there are no more ST candidates available to admit, in this case these 2 seats of ST will not be given to SC as already 9 SC/ST candidates have been admitted.
