Incorporated as an autonomous body under the Department of School Education and Literacy, MHRD, Navodaya is a premier institute for school education (from class VI to XII) established all over the country primarily meant for providing state of the art quality educational opportunity to the so far deprived sections in Rural Areas. 75% of the seats in the Vidyalaya are reserved for students from rural background and the rest 25% are selected from urban areas. Other than the number of seats reserved for the SC/ST/OBC category of students, 33% of total seats are reserved for female students and 3% seats are meant for Physically Challenged category of students.
