Novodaya Vidyalaya Samiti, Regional Office, Patna was established during the year 1994 with 27 JNVs in Bihar State. That time the state Jharkhand was not bifurcated from Bihar state. In the year 2000, Jharkhand state was bifurcated from Bihar State. Later on, the Government of West Bengal also accepted the scheme for the opening of JNVs in West Bengal State, and thus all these three States i.e, Bihar, Jharkhand, and West Bengal State are being monitored by the Regional Office, Patna.
Gradually, with the passing of the years and the creation of new districts in every state, the number of JNVs rose to 84 at present.
NVS, RO, Patna shifted to Karpuri Tharur Sadan, Kendriya Karyalay Parisar, Block – A & B 5th Floor, Ashiyana Digha Road, Patna -25 permanently. The Regional Office, Patna is grateful to the Hon’ble Commissioner, NVS, HQrs for his sincere efforts to bring RO, from Boring Road Office to a posh colony after two decades.
“Shaala Darpan” is a good initiative to make the dream successful of our nation – Digital India. I salute the officers of NVS, HQ for their endeavor in introducing Shaala Darpan.
The above success history of JNVs under Patna Region attributes mostly to the dedication and utmost devotion of the Teachers and the Principals who relentlessly offered services to do the Navodaya proud, though there were many constraints like shortage of staff especially teaching staff, accommodation, water, and proper electricity supply, etc.
