While the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) had scheduled to release the first allotment list for admission to class 1 today, the same will not be releasing today. This is the first time that the KV class 1 admissions are being held digitally, however, it still could not shake off the effect of the global pandemic. In its recent notice, the KVS had said, “The date of draw of lots for Admission in Std 1 scheduled on 23rd April, 2021 has been postponed due to unprecedented rise in COVID-19 cases in the country."
The new dates of release of the allotment list are not yet out and students and parents will have to wait longer. While they are waiting, they can still arrange for the documents needed for admissions, so as and when the list is out, they can start the admission process.
