Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, Bagudi, Balasore, Odisha (JNV Bagudi or JNV Balasore)[1] is an Indian public residential school in Bagudi village (near Mangalpur) of Soro block in the Balasore district, Odisha.[2][3]

Government-run, it provides education to children predominantly from the rural areas and economically challenged families.

It was established and is managed by Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (an autonomous organization of the Ministry of Human Resource Development and Department of Secondary Education and Higher Education).[4] In accordance with the National Policy on Education (1986) of the government of India, the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Bagudi in the Balasore district was established during March 1987.[5]


Established in 1987,[5] the school is the brain child of the then-human resources minister P. V. Narasimha Rao (who later became Prime Minister of India) and Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi to find and foster talented children from the rural parts of India.

They were formerly named as Navodaya Vidyalayas and renamed later as Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas in the birth-centenary year of Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of independent India. Navodaya Vidyalayas are all over the country, except Tamil Nadu. There are approximately 557 JNVs across India, offering free education to all students who are selected through the admission process which includes an all-India entrance exam, held at the district level.

A fee of Rs.200 per month is charged for general category boys who are above the poverty line.
