The NVS undertakes admission tests for Class 6 for Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas every year. There are approximately 80 seats in every school. Students are selected on the basis of a country-wide Selection Test. Shortlisted candidates are informed by the respective school’s principal through SMS and followed by a registered post.

The JNVs were started in 1986 as per the National Policy of Education. There is no education fee in these schools. However, Rs 600 per month is charged towards boarding and lodging, uniform, and textbooks. This charge is applicable for students of Classes IX to XII towards Vidyalaya Vikas Nidhi.

The students of SC/ST categories, all-girl students, and the students whose family income is below the poverty line (BPL) are exempted from this charge.

The main aim of JNVs is to provide quality education to students, especially those hailing from rural areas. At present, there are 661 schools operating across the country.
