As per the Scheme, a maximum of 60 students can be admitted in Class VI per year in a RGNV. 


Admissions to Rajeev Gandhi  Navodaya Vidyalayas take place on the basis of a selection test  conducted by UTTARAKHAND VIDYALAYEE SIKSHA PARISHAD Ramnagar. Because of the poor communication facilities in rural areas special care is taken to ensure that children from far flung rural areas get admission forms free of cost without any problem. Sufficient publicity is done through local newspapers, BEO office, visits of Principals and teachers of Navodaya Vidyalayas to the local schools of the district. As a result rural areas are becoming aware of the Navodaya Vidyalaya Scheme. The entrance examination is conducted in the month of February and a merit list of successful students is placed at the school notice board.  Successful students are intimated by post for completing admission formalities and new session begins by the month of April.
