The land will be transferred on lease basis at a nominal rent of Re. 1/- (Rupee one only) per annum (without any premium) and in terms of existing Government policy on the subject.
The formalities relating to transfer of land to KVS would be completed within the period of 3 months. KVS will thereupon construct school buildings, etc. on the leased land as per their own specifications and with their own funds.

This would provide a conducive environment for effective teaching and learning and also increased educational opportunities for the children of both defence personnel and civilians in the area.
