Title of the Scheme



The Social Welfare Department is running 4 Navodaya Model schools and Morarji Desai Residential schools for Scheduled Castes. Seven more schools are proposed to be sanctioned during the current year. These schools are at present managed by the concerned Departments through the Zilla Panchayats.

  The 4 Navodaya schools are located in 4 Revenue Divisions in the state as follows.

Channapatna - Bangalore Rural District. Bangalore Division.

Mundaje -        Dakshnina Kannada District - Mysore  Division.
