Kendriya Vidyalayas are an exclusive system of educational hierarchy under MHRD of the Government of India. The KVs have covered a large area of the education system to provide quality education to the children belonging to different social backgrounds and family. KVs are the model schools established under the Central Govt. after attaining independence of India. Setting up of KVs is a matter of pride for that particular locality or district all over India. The best syllabus and curriculum is followed by this sangathan. Every opportunity is offered to students for their all round development. Recruitment of well trained teachers has been the special focus of this sangathan. The teachers take great pain in moulding the behaviour of the students coming from different socio-economic backgrounds. Action based learning is found in all the classes in this type of school.

A case study (on KV IIT Guwahati) conducted with an aim to offer an overall knowledge about the sangathan in general and the school under consideration in particular. A detail analysis of a particular school has enabled to assess the norms and procedures of such type of school. Such schools are spread in all the states and union territories of India which helps in binding together and it acts as an agent of national integration. Along with this, the ‘Hindi’ language is promoted which is our national language. Also, it is a matter of pride now if an individual is recruited as a teacher either at primary, secondary or higher secondary level. The quality of teaching is quite advanced and as such the students are also highly benefitted. Regular change in curriculum at a certain interval is quite appreciating and it becomes effective throughout India spontaneously. Another important feature which this study could perceive is that through these schools there is uniformity either in terms of uniform, rules and regulations, syllabus all over the country. A student passed out from such school obtains equal recognition and status in any part of the nation. Also, there is an opportunity of transferring a student from such school anywhere and everywhere at any point of time within the country as because there is a network of these schools. This opportunity is specially required for defence personnel or central government employees because of their transferable jobs.
