Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya (KGBV)
The components of the scheme will be as follows

.Setting up of residential schools where there are a minimum of 50 girls predominantly from the SC, ST and minority communities available to study in the school at the elementary level. The number can be more than 50 depending on the number of eligible girls. Three possible models for such school have been identified and revised financial norms for the same are given Annexure – I (a), (b) & (c). The revised financial norms will be admissible to the new KGBVs approved with effect from 1st April, 2008. Only the revised recurring grant will be admissible to the existing 2180 KGBVs sanctioned upto March, 2007 with effect from 1st April, 2008.
.To provide necessary infrastructure for these schools
.To prepare and procure necessary teaching learning material and aids for the schools
.To put in place appropriate systems to provide necessary academic support and for evaluation and monitoring
.To motivate and prepare the girls and their families to send them to residential school
.At the primary level the emphasis will be on the slightly older girls who are out of school and were unable to complete primary schools (10+). However, in difficult areas (migratory populations, scattered habitations that do not qualify for primary/ upper primary schools) younger girls can also be targeted
.At the upper primary level, emphasis will be on girls, especially, adolescent girls who are unable to go to regular schools
.In view of the targeted nature of the scheme, 75% girls from SC, ST, OBC or minority communities would be accorded priority for enrolment in such residential schools and only thereafter, 25% girls from families below poverty line.
.Established NGOs and other non-profit making bodies will be involved in the running of the schools, wherever possible. These residential schools can also be adopted by the corporate groups. Separate guidelines are being issued in the matter.
