Abstract: Education is the backbone of a country. Not only it plays a vital role in the life of every human being but also occupies an important place in the development process of a country, its growth and welfare. Even it is considered as one of the most important indicators of development in a country according to quality-of-life approach. It has become very crucial perhaps never more so in man’s history than today. In India the importance of education has been highlighted in the Constitution {Article 29(2), 45 and 46} which provide for free and compulsory education for all the children belonging to different sections of the society including scheduled caste, scheduled tribe and other backward communities. To fulfill this objective enshrined in the Constitution both the Central Government and the State Governments have taken keen interest in increasing the literacy rate in the country. As a result a considerable progress has been made over the last five decades. The present paper in this regard is an attempt to focus and analyze the rate of educational development in the State of Tripura and the wastage involved therein. For the purpose of analysis both primary and secondary data are used in this paper.
