Information on India Education Development

India has made progress in terms of increasing the primaryeducation attendance rate and expanding literacy to approximately three-quarters of the population in the 7–10 age group, by 011. India’s improved education system is often cited as one of the main contributors to its economic development. Education in India is provided by the public sector as well as the private sector, with control and funding coming from three levels: central, state and local. Under various articles of the Indian Constitution, free and compulsory education is provided as a fundamental right to children between the ages of 6 and 14. The ratio of public schools to private schools in India is 7:5.

At the primary and secondary level, India has a large private school system complementing the government run schools, with 29% of students receiving private education in the 6 to 14 age group. Certain post-secondary technical schools are also private. The private education market in India had a revenue of US$450 million in 2008, but is projected to be a US$40 billion market.
