SC/ST/OBC-NCL applicants as per the order of priorities of admission, irrespective of sanctioned strength.
(V) Fifth Lot: – After all these processes, if sanctioned strength is not filled and seats are vacant, applicants from Priority Cat-3 (Cat-4 in Project/ IHL KV) onwards will be taken up for admission as per existing priority list for unreserved seats only.
The unfilled leftover reserved seats of RTE/SC/ ST/ OBC (NCL) should be kept vacant.
(VI) Filling of leftover vacant reserved seats, in case adequate number of candidates registered online are not available: For filling unfilled quota of reserved seats for RTE/SC/ST/OBC, a separate advertisement is to be given, in the month of April, as per schedule of Admission by the concerned Kendriya Vidyalaya, for offline registration of the candidates belonging to that particular category only to fill the shortfall of reservation quota. The candidates thus registered offline may be admitted based on their Priority Category to fulfil the shortfall of reservation quota. Even after going through the above exercise, if these seats remain vacant, then the following procedure may be adopted:
(a) In no case the seats reserved as per RTE will be de-reserved.
(b) In case of vacant seats ofSC/ST: SC/ Sf seat should be filled after interchanging the seat as per the availability of registered candidates from the available SC/ ST social category priority list i.e. vacant SC seats may be filled with ST or vice versa, only if total SC and ST candidates admitted taken together fall short of total reserved seats of SC and ST taken together. This aggregation may be obtained by counting all the admitted SC and ST candidates of all the categories e.g. in a single section KV total SC and Sf seats are 9 (6 SC + 3 ST). Now suppose 8 SC and 1 ST is already admitted and there are no more ST candidates available to admit, in this case these 2 seats of ST will not be given to SC as already 9 SC/ ST candidates have been admitted. Clarification: OBC seats cannot be interchanged with SC/ST or RTE.
