KV means to Keep Vigil, used in boarding schools across India, where when students are "upto some mischief" one of them is assigned to KV, to alert the miscreants when a teacher/senior is in sight. While the expansion of KV has been lost over time, the abbreviated form is still widely used all over India and has resulted in the accepted phrase now being: "Keep KV"
