Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs) is a system of schools for talented students in India. They are run by Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti, New Delhi, under the Department of School Education and Literacy, Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India. JNVs are fully residential and co-educational schools affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), New Delhi, with classes from VI to XII standard. The total number of JNVs in India are  661. JNVs are specifically tasked with finding talented children of India and providing them with an education equivalent to the best residential school system, without regard to their families’ socio-economic condition.

It was felt that children with special talent or aptitude should be provided opportunities to progress at a faster pace by making good quality education available to them irrespective of their capacity to pay for it. Such education would enable students from rural areas to compete with their urban counterparts on an equal footing.

Navodaya Vidyalayas  are affiliated to CBSE and offer free education to talented  children from  Class-VI to XII. Entry to  Navodaya Vidyalaya is made in Class-VI  with lateral entry in  Classes- IX & XI.  Each  Navodaya Vidyalaya is a co-educational  residential institution providing free  boarding and lodging, free school uniforms, text books, stationery, and to and fro rail and bus fare to students. However, a nominal fee @  Rs. 600/- per month is charged from the boys of Classes- IX to XII as Vidyalaya Vikas Nidhi except from the students of exempted category.
