The Scheme of Navodaya Vidyalayas provides for implementation of the Three Language Formula.
The third language taught in Hindi speaking districts is linked with the migration of Students. In the Hindi speaking districts, the third language taught in a Navodaya Vidyalaya is the language of the 30% students migrating to that Vidyalaya from non- Hindi regions. This language is compulsory for all. In the non-Hindi regions, Navodaya Vidyalayas follow the normal Three Language Formula i.e. regional language, Hindi and English.
