India is one of the countries (along with the Arab states and sub-Saharan Africa) where the literacy levels are still below the threshold level of 75% but gigantic efforts are on to achieve that level.

The table below shows the adult and youth literacy rates for India

Country Adult Literacy Rate Youth Literacy Rate
India 61.3 73.3
