Tripura’s Chief Minister Manik Sarkar in the International Literacy Day, said that the state which has over 95% literacy rate is not enough and there should be measures taken to take it to 100% literacy rate in the state. To achieve this goal, he mentioned that his government is taking necessary steps.
Earlier, Tripura occupied the first position as far as the literacy rate in India is concerned with 95.16% literacy in this north eastern state. In a function arranged for the occasion of International Literacy Day in Tripura, Manik Sarkar said that his government is taking all the steps required to make his state 100% literate.
According to the Census 2011 reports, Tripura was in the fourth position among all the other states in the country in the sphere of literacy. But the government has from then on taken adequate measures and worked hard to secure a better place for Tripura in the list. In the last survey conducted last year under the supervision of Indian Statistical Institute by the state government, it found out that the literacy rate in the state has rose to 95.16%, which is expected to grow in the years to come.
