The second Kendriya Vidyalaya in Sambalpur city will be set up at Burla instead of the earlier site near railway station.
Sambalpur Collector Balwant Singh said the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) has approved a second school in Sambalpur City and if things go smoothly, admission would start from next academic session.
Informing that 10 acres of land near Burla NAC College have been identified for the school, Singh said it will be handed over to the Sangathan after Water Resources Department, to which the land belongs, transfers the ownership.
Meanwhile, the district administration is planning to provide temporary arrangement at Hindi High School here and the KV will be shifted to Burla after construction of the building at the new location, Singh said.
Earlier, the district administration had identified 10 acres of land near Sambalpur City railway station and a KVS delegation had given its approval for the location. Even the old TRW School building at Jamadarpali on the outskirts of the City was finalised to operate the school temporarily. Subsequently, the Sangathan finalised the new location at Burla.
The second Kendriya Vidyalaya which was to begin operation from 2012-2013 academic session got delayed due to lack of coordination among the district officials and school authorities.
