A span of the about 15 years may be nothing when we consider the age of the mother earth or a sediment rock, but is certainly a considerable period when we talk of an education institute, which is fully financed by the Government in a remote area. Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Devrala – of Bhiwani district of Haryana is situated at a distance of 40 Kms from Bhiwani District head quarter and 2 Km from Devrala Village. It is situated on Bhiwani –Bahal Road in the out skirts of Devrala Village.
On the basis of National Policy of Education (NPE) 1986, the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya was established in Devrala Village in August 1988. Initially it was established in the temporary school building and in 1993, it was shifted to new building in a permanent site. The Vidyalaya has been working under Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Department of Higher Education and School Education, Govt. of India. The Vidyalaya is a co-educational residential school, fully financed by the Govt. of India, through an autonomous organization, Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS).
The Vidyalaya is basically to encourage and promote talent, pre-dominantly from rural areas and weaker sections of the district and to provide them with quality modern education for their all-round development.
The Vidyalaya is a model of pace-setter institution in the district and is resource centre for promotion of excellence.
