Universalisation of elementary education refers to the enrollment, retention, and universal access to qualitative education for children up to the age of 14. Elementary education is a Fundamental Right. The provisions included in the Constitution of India emphasize offering elementary education to all children. Attempts by India to universalize elementary education (UEE) dates back to the pre-independence period. This fostered the inclusion of the same under the Indian Constitution’s Directive Principles of State Policy under Article 45 (1950). The government has been taking many measures to universalize education through programs such as Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, Kothari Commission, and National Education Policy to make a few changes in the field of education. Through Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan, students can get the privilege of getting literate which can enhance every child’s personality and can provide a range of job opportunities in the same field. This phenomenon can work in making the nation educate and stand on its own without outer source’s assistance. All in all, it can help in reducing illiteracy in India.
