Over the last decade, the Literacy rate in India has increased to a great deal. Also, we could notice that the rate of literacy has gone up tremendously in states like Himachal Pradesh and Rajasthan after the implementation of free education in the villages. According to Census of India 2011, the literacy rate has raised up to 74.04 per cent from 64.8 percent in 2001 census. But there is a wide gender disparity is prevailing in Indian literacy rate. High literacy rates in 2011 were 82.1 percent for men and the low literacy rate 65.46 percent for women. A literacy rate also differs from state to state. Literacy rate vary from 96% in some district of Kerala to a below 30% in some areas of Madhya Pradesh. Thus, there is a vast difference is prevailing across different sections of the population.
