School Education & Litercay, Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India


Education is viewed as key to reducing poverty and increasing overall prosperity levels in India. With a relatively young and socio-culturally diverse population, public provision of education plays a key role in providing opportunities for human development. Through its centrally sponsored schemes for school education – SarvaShikshaAbhiyan(SSA) and RashtriyaMadhyamikShikshaAbhiyan(RMSA), the Government of India (GoI) has considerably improved access to elementary and secondary education over the last decade. Some 248 million children between the ages of 6 and 17 now attend 1.5 million government, government-aided, and private schools in the 28 states and 8 Union Territories that form India’s federal system.

The education sector in India is substantially decentralized. Education is a concurrent subject of the Indian constitution. The federal government through the Ministry of Education (MoE) is the policy-setting body
