Recently my organization, a CPSU unit located in Tamil Nadu, has recruited many Ex-Servicemen hailing from various parts of India. Many of these have school going children whom they have got admitted to a nearby Kendriya Vidyalaya (KV) on transfer basis from other states. The Organisation also has a school with CBSE syllabus but managed by a private body. The parents of these children residing in the company township have hired local cab /van operators to pick up and drop their kids to and fro. The KV is situated app. at 12KM from the township. Of late these operators plying on this route have been neglecting the safety norms and the children are been conveyed in overcrowded vehicles.
Further, as the children (in considerable numbers) have been studying in the KVís throughout, so it is quite difficult to adjust in a Non-KV atmosphere due to language barrier, methodology of teaching and system administration of schools. The request for a transport for conveyance of the children to KV has been denied by the company. Whereas the company is providing transport to 10-11 schools operating inside the township area by picking up students by covering several KMs.
Now, will anyone suggest/help us in showing the entire possible approach path in enabling the ex-serviceman community getting their children blessed with a transport? Is there any mandatory norm/legal provision/supreme or high courtís ruling/corporate responsibility/welfare measure towards school children or Ex-servicemen or any other feasibility towards provisioning of a transport for schooling purpose? Pl help.

Dear Kanchan deb,
As per my view, there is no said rules or orders available for providing transport to the school going wards of staff members. But as a matter of Welfare measure we can provide vehicle to the school going children of staff, for which your company director or GM Level approval in a file note will serve the purpose.
All the private schools are having their own school buses. But till now the KV is not operating their own buses. Whoever sponsored the KV (in Army or IAF), only provided the School Bus for their personnel. Here also as said by you, you are having more students in KV, So you can operate a bus for the school children as a welfare measure. It may also be treated as a retention method and reduce the attrition level of employees.
