Indian Government is trying their best to improve the literacy level in the country and they have taken many necessary steps in recent times to improve the over all education system in both city and rural areas. It is true that in recent years they have been able to bring more and more students in the arena of education. However, still four of ten Indian people are illiterate according to a report of UNESCO.
Free education system is more and more spread by the Government in various areas of India especially in the rural territories. Poverty is one of the main hindrances for a lot of parents in both city and village to send their children to schools. So the government is trying to provide the primary right of proper education to the students free of cost in various areas and it has become successful. In many areas more and more students are coming to schools for study. However, Government has to reach more rural areas to bring more students to schools.
Establishing new schools:
Few decades ago, lack of schools was a huge problem especially in rural areas. Study in a private school is much more expensive and often the poor students can not avail this facility. The students had to go miles after miles to reach their schools which created a lot of problems. However, in recent years Government has established more and more schools in various rural areas and the problem is solved to a great extent. However, there is still many a village where the schools are far away. Many a students especially the girls face safety problems while going to these schools. Therefore, the Government needs to take necessary steps on that to bring more girl students into school.
Government has taken various effective schemes to spread education in more and more students in various remote areas. Sarva Siksha Aviyan Scheme is one of them. In this scheme, the government is providing education to many a student absolutely free. Mid Day meal scheme has also been extremely successful to bring more students in the schools. As the students are getting the food in schools, the parents are sending their students in schools rather than in a hotel to become a child labor. However, it is true that in various places all these facilities are not properly received.
Free Uniforms and scholarship:
Recently government is providing school uniforms, text books, and some other necessary things related to study to the students in many places. Government scholarships are increasing the interest of lot of poor students for higher studies. Government is arranging various study courses and vocational trainings absolutely free.
Proper use of fund:
In India, Government is trying to generate more funds for the study of the students in various areas. However, recently the Government is looking into the thing that the fund which is generated for the study of the children is properly used. The fund should reach the rural and remote areas where the students really need it. The Government is trying to assure that the fund is used for the proper reasons related to study only.
It is true that recently Government has taken a lot of measures to improve the education system in various areas in India. However, they need to continue this and generate more funds to make a proper infrastructure to make more and more children interested to study in schools.
