Nearly 50, Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan feels it’s time for a face-lift. For starters, it has changed the look of its students. The solid blues and whites have been replaced by smart checks; pants have replaced salwars. The KVS unveiled the new uniform designs — changed for the first time since the school-system’s inception in 1963 . The National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) developed the new style and the ministry of textiles was involved too.
