HYDERABAD: A member of Parliament can now recommend 10 students for admission to Kendriya Vidyalayas.

Union human resource development minister Smriti Irani has informed Bhongir MP Boora Narsaiah Goud that the Kendriya Vidyalaya Saangathan has decided to increase the number of recommendations made by MPs from six to ten. The change comes into effect from next academic year 2016-17.

The Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan would shortly notify the scheme separately, she informed Goud who sought an increase in  MP’s quota from six to 16.

Meanwhile, Narsaiah Goud has urged the secretary of the Union textiles ministry to take steps to ban the illegal printed version of IKAT design of Pochampally handloom sarees. Some powerloom companies were coming out with printed version of IKAT at cheaper prices, killing the patented handloom IKAT and Pochampally designs, the MP said.
