Education is an empowerment. Education includes acquiring knowledge and skill which acts as a tool not only for personal development but also for the development of the nation. For a developing country like India, the quality of education plays a vital role for moral, economic and political development. For the progress of country, the education should be job-centred, value- based and mass oriented. But in contrary to that the present- day education system is mark oriented and the quality of education depends on ‘money’ and ‘politics’. Even after recognising education as a fundamental right (86th Amendment Act, 2002 inserted Article 21 A that includes provision of free and compulsory education for the children of age 6-14 years) how many children get access of this basic right? Still India is having 25% of illiteracy in the world and considered as one of the largest illiterate countries in the world. Studies shows that if this continuous India will attain universal literacy rate only by 2060. So, this research tries to find out the problems in the education system and ways to improve the drooping level of education in our country. The methodology to be employed for this research article are the study of data from major world journals and also data collected from stake holders in the issue. Data interpretation and analysis of such collected data may highlight the real lag in the development of our people.
