| MIGRATION |
One of the declared objectives of the Samiti is to promote National integration among the children. A major step in this direction is the scheme of migration. Under this scheme 30% of the strength of 9th class is exchanged between JNVs of Hindi speaking and Non-Hindi speaking areas. These students will study for one year in the concerned Vidyalya. This provides them with an opportunity to come closer to the culture and living conditions of the area where they are migrated. JNV/Kollam is linked with JNV/Betul in MP for the purpose of migration. At present we have 21 students from JNV/Betul.
