One of the main features of Navodaya Vidyalaya Scheme is the Migration Scheme of exchange of students from one Navodaya Vidyalaya in a particular linguistic region to another Vidyalaya in different linguistic region to promote understanding of the diversity and plurality of Indian culture and people. According to the scheme 30% of the students from one Navodaya Vidyalaya are migrated to another Navodaya Vidyalaya at class IX level for a period of one year. The Migration takes place generally between Hindi and Non-Hindi speaking districts.

The migration scheme had a modest beginning during 1998-99 with only two JNVs and 31 migrated children. In the span of 25 years, migration is taking place on a large scale. Due precautions are taken in transporting the children from the remotest parts of the Country between JNVs located in North, South, East or West India. By and large, the Principals have been able to ensure that the children under migration are made to feel at home to the extent possible by giving them special care and attention.


The students of JNV Bengaluru Urban are Migrated to JNV Tikamgarh (Madhya Pradesh) 2014-15 onwards under this scheme. The students to be migrated to JNV Tikamgarh are selected by the Regional Administrator, Bengaluru Urban District , the Chairman of Vidyalaya, on the basis of students voluntary willingness and by a lottery in presence of parents of IX class students where sufficient number is not forth coming on Voluntary basis .
