The concept of education in India is not new rather it was India where education under the supervision of a guru started. In those times Nalanda and Taxila were the important institutions of learning and considered to be favorites of a number of foreign students. In fact, Nalanda University of India was among the oldest Universities in the world.
Now with the change in times education system of India has undergone a sea change. Now pre-primary and primary, elementary and secondary, undergraduate and postgraduate are the different levels of education in India. Government too is making great efforts so that everyone can get access to education. Government emphasizes to provide compulsory elementary education up to 14 years of age and has also banned child labour. According to the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009, children between 6 to 14 years of age group will get the education for free. Apart from this, government has aggressively campaigned for Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan but it still has a long way to go due to lack of resources.

However if we talk about private schools you can see superior academic results of students. Not only curricular but also extra-curricular activities are organized in these schools resulting in the all round development of the child.
Although parents can also teach their children at home using the required resources yet home schooling is not welcomed to a nice extent. Government of India is also paying attention to vocational training at the secondary level of education so that the students can better understand their interests and accordingly choose their career.
It’s a matter of pride that we are the third largest in the world when it comes to higher education. Indian Institute of Technology commonly known as IITs, Indian Institute of Management (IIMs), Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Indian Institute of Science etc. are the most admired institutions of India which brought both name and fame to India. You can too buy latest images and videos on these topics from various media houses. Indian Government is making efforts for the further improvement of higher education. The much awaited Foreign Universities Bill is still waiting for its turn in the queue. The approval of this bill is expected to show green signal to the foreign universities to establish their campuses in India.
Apart from these there is an opportunity for the people who failed to complete their school education due to some reasons. National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) gives them a chance to study again through open and distance learning. Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) provides distance learning at higher level.
