Tilak, Jandhyala B. G.
Indian Journal of Adult Education, v39 n1 p14-22 Jan 1978
Although India's literacy rate has increased, the faster population growth has increased the nation's total illiteracy. The paper reviews differences in literacy rates among various regions and examines factors to explain this inequality, concluding that compulsory education for children is not enough and that adult literacy campaigns are vital.
