about padhna likhna abhiyan

The primary objective of Padhna Likhna Abhiyan is to impart functional literacy to 57 lakh adult illiterates aged 15 and above under a Basic Literacy Programme for a period of one year - 2020 to 2021.

Adult Education in the Indian context, extends educational option to those adults, who have lost the opportunity of getting an education and transcended the age for formal education, and now feel a need for pursuing basic education, vocational education (skill development), equivalency, physical and emotional development, practical arts, applied science, or recreation. Currently, the percentage of adult illiterates in India is around 35% of the world’s total adult illiterates.

In order to ensure complete focus on eradication of illiteracy, the scheme of Adult Education (Padhna Likhna Abhiyan) will be focused on the Basic Literacy component. The Abhiyan will focus on women, Schedules Castes (SCs), Scheduled Tribes (STs), Minorities, other disadvantaged groups and aspirational districts.
