ANSWER
MINISTER OF HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT
(SHRI RAMESH POKHRIYAL ‘NISHANK’)

(a) to (e): The Navodaya Vidyalaya Scheme envisages opening of one Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV) in each district of the country. Opening of new JNVs is a continuous process which depends on the willingness of the concerned State Government/UT administration to make available requisite suitable land free of cost for construction of the permanent building and making available required temporary building, free of rent, to run the Vidyalaya till the permanent building is constructed. However, actual sanction and opening of new JNV depends on the availability of funds and approval by the Competent Authority.One JNV each has been sanctioned in all the districts of the country (as on 31stMay, 2014) including the State of Jharkhand (except the districts in the State of Tamil Nadu which has not yet accepted the Scheme).

As on date, there are 637 functional Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs) in the country. A statement showing the details of JNVs operating in the country including the State of Jharkhand, State/location-wise is annexed
