Two years after the third Kendriya Vidyalaya in Tiruchi district that was started under 'civil sector' at Golden Rock began functioning out of a temporary building, there has been no visible progress in establishment of permanent infrastructure, parents rue.

The school has single-section classes from I to VII, and the student strength has been reportedly limited despite huge demand for admissions due to space constraints. The current student strength is 315 according to the school website.

The shifting of the institution to a permanent building is a key factor for increasing the student strength significantly over the coming years, according to a parent, citing the instances of other KVs in the district.

The two other Kendriya Vidyalayas at Ordnance Factory and Heavy Alloy Penetrator Project township functioning in permanent buildings for several years have student strengths exceeding 2,200 and 1,100 respectively.

As per the norms of the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, land to the extent of 6.4 acres has already been transferred to it by the Railways, the sponsoring agency. The KVS had determined the suitability of the land with regard to approach road, drinking water and power a few years back.

The Kendriya Vidyalaya at Golden Rock is sought after by employees of central government departments, the Railways and the employees of Airports Authority of India. The increase in intake capacity will be in their interests as well as people belonging to socio-economically backward sections.

The space in the premises of erstwhile Railway Mixed School in the Golden Rock Township in which the Kendriya Vidyalaya is functioning temporarily is not sufficient, the parents say, voicing the need for the school authorities to lobby hard with the Ministry of Human Resource Development and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan. The school authorities are required to correspond with the Works Division of KVS to expedite the project, according to a parent, a bank employee.

When contacted, Tiruchi Member of Parliament P. Kumar said he will enable the process of establishment of permanent campus by taking up the issue with the Ministry of Human Resource Development during this month.
