BALASORE:  Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) has asked the district administration to provide encroachment-free land for construction of the Kendriya Vidyalaya-II (KV-II) in Balasore.

Last month, the district administration had identified a patch of 10 acres of land in Remuna area which was visited by a team of officials of the KVS. Sources said KVS has informed the Collector that the encroachments on the land must be removed or land without such structure must be allotted. Besides, the land was used by locals as playground and required filling to be brought on level with road.

“The plot identified by the administration has many trees. Hence, at this stage and in the present condition, KVS cannot accept the plot,” Deputy Commissioner of KVS L Chari said in a statement.

Chari stated that only when the suitable plot or plot in suitable condition is offered, it would be accepted by KVS, after which the process of land transfer on permanent grant basis or on lease, should be completed by the State Government.

As per KVS rules and agreement signed by the Collector on behalf of the State Government, initially KV-II shall be opened with Class I to V, with one section in each class and the temporary accommodation must have 20 rooms.

Collector Sanatan Mallik, however, said the land will be made encroachment-free soon but the KVS will have to fill it up as per their requirements.

On temporary campus, he said the KVS officials are yet to intimate their decision to start the school in the OSDMA building, which has been selected by the administration for the purpose.
