(c) CAT I
(d) CAT II
(h) CAT III
(i) CAT IV
(k) CAT VI (If applicable)
(I) Single Girl Child (Hereafter referred to as ‘SGC’)
The following sequence is to be adopted for the fresh admissions to Class-I in Kendriya Vidyalayas.
(I) First Lot: 10 seats (out of 40 seats) in Class I per section are to be filled as per RTE Provisions (25% of seats) and these 10 seats will be filled by draw of lots from all applications of SC / ST / EWS / BPL / OBC (Non-Creamy Layer) / Differently abled taken together who are the resident of Neighbourhood.
(II) Second Lot: Lottery for Differently Abled candidates of SC / ST / OBC- NCL / Unreserved is to be conducted as per Priority Category.
(III) Third Lot: Remaining seats (after deducting RTE and Differently Abled applicants, if any) wall be filled as per the existing Priority Category of Cat-i and Cat-2 (Cat-i to Cat-3 in case of Project / IHL KV) only up to the sanctioned strength or till all the registered candidates from Cat-i and Cat-2 (Cat-i to Cat-3 in case of Project / IHL KV) is filled.
(IV) Fourth Lot: The total number of SC / ST / OBC-NCL will be counted from the admitted summary of RTE, DA, Cat-i and Cat-2 (Cat-i to Cat-3 in case of Project / IHL KV) admissions done till third phase. Thereafter, the shortfall-in the seats reserved for SC / ST / OBC-NCL, if any, shall be covered by admitting SC / ST / OBC-NCL applicants as per the order of priorities of admission, irrespective of sanctioned strength.

The unfilled leftover reserved seats of RTE / SC / ST / OBC (NCL) should be kept vacant.
(VI) Filling of leftover vacant reserved seats, in case adequate number of candidates registered online are not available: For filling unfilled quota of reserved seats for RTE / SC / ST / OBC, a separate advertisement is to be given, in the month of April, as per schedule of Admission by the concerned Kendriya Vidyalaya, for offline registration of the candidates belonging to that particular category only to fill the shortfall of reservation quota. The candidates thus registered offline may be admitted based on their Priority Category to fulfil the shortfall of reservation quota.

(a) In no case the seats reserved as per RTE will be de-reserved,
(b) In case of vacant seats of SC / ST: SC / ST seat should be filled after interchanging the seat as per the availability of registered candidates from the available SC / ST social category priority list i.e. vacant SC seats may be filled with ST or vice versa, only if total SC and ST candidates admitted taken together fall short of total reserved seats of SC and ST taken together. This aggregation may be obtained by counting all the admitted SC and ST candidates of all the categories e.g. in a single section KV total SC and ST seats are 9 (6 SC + 3 ST). Now suppose 8 SC and 1 ST is already admitted and there are no more ST candidates available to admit, in this case these 2 seats of ST will not be given to SC as already 9 SC / ST candidates have been admitted. Clarification: OBC seats cannot be interchanged with SC / ST or RTE.
(c) In case of vacant seat of OBC:
(i) Within the sanctioned strength: After going through the process mentioned in para 4(vi) still reserve seats for OBC (NCL) are unfilled, it may be filled with remaining waitlisted eligible candidates from Priority Categories within approved class strength.
