Education in India

Since the time India got free from the British rule, we have seen a profound transformation in its education system. The huge demand for manpower, lead to a sudden growth of the literacy rate in the country. The people also made serious efforts to abolish old customs and traditions, so that they could give equal rights to the women of the country and provide them similar kind of education as men.

As the education became most important for people, the demand for quality education grew in every part of the country. Big, old and reputed institutions have limited seats and that’s when the private institutes jump in the scene. These private institutions are growing in number at a fast pace and giving tough competition to the government ones.

With this extremity in competition, every city has turned itself into an educational hub. These hubs are capable of providing decent education to your kid at every level. Not just curriculum wise, but these institutes also provide an overall development in the personality.
