The government has scrapped the provision of admission of students in Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) under the Member of Parliament (MP) quota and introduced free admission for children orphaned by Covid-19. 

As per the revised guidelines issued by the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan for admission for 2022-23 academic year, children orphaned due to Covid-19 pandemic will be considered for admission over and above the class strength under PM CARES for Children Scheme.  

"The admission will be done on the basis of list given by District Magistrate of the concerned District subject to 10 children per KV and maximum two children per class. These children will be exempted from payment of fees (Tuition fee, Computer fund, and VVN) from Classes I to XII," the guideline stated.

The Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan had put on hold admission in the central schools under special provisions, including MP and DM quotas. The move had triggered severe criticisms from different quarters. As per the provision, the MP quota used to allow every Member of Parliament to recommend 10 students for admission to the Kendriya Vidyalayas.
