Kendriya Vidyalaya students will sport a new "contemporary"-looking uniform from this academic session. The uniform, which was unveiled on Wednesday, has been designed in collaboration with National Institute of Fashion Technology, said a release issued by the HRD Ministry.
"The new design is with a view to remaining contemporary and to provide a unique identity to its students, keeping in mind the comfort and the cost factors," said the release.
The present uniform design has been in vogue since the inception of Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan in 1963. The Board of Governors for Kendriya Vidyalyas in their 92nd meeting held on May 18, 2012 has approved the new uniform.
