Union Territories. These are co-educational residential schools
fully financed and administered by Government of India through an
autonomous organization, Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti.
Admissions in JNVs are made through the JAWAHAR NAVODAYA VIDYALAYA

JNVs is the mother tongue or regional language up to Class VIII and
