Of late, we observe that quality of education has deteoriated drastically during past three decades as most of the primary and secondary schools are managed by State Governments at village level. These obsolete institutions are imparting education without updating syllabus keeping in view the pace of changes taking place in the field of information and technology. Although , there are certain schools under Navodaya Vidyalaya Sanghathan and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sanghathan which are providing quality education, yet these are not enough to meet requirement of the villages. Education being a subject of Concurrent list of our Constitution, both Central and State Governments are imparting education through their institutional network. However, the State Governments are not only lacking in quality but also in quantity of education as adequate number of technical institution like Industrial Training Institutions, Politechnical, management institutions, Indian Institute of Technology, medical colleges etc. are not open in rural or semi-urban areas.
