Academics come as a mean of accumulation, development and transmission of knowledge through generations. In 17th century, some foreign scholars described it as types of institutions for higher education. But in India, Takshashila, now modern Pakistan, was the center of individualistic learning for several students. Chanakya, best known scholar in economics, is well known for completing his academics from Takshashila. Archery, hunting, laws of life, medical and military science were the part of academics there. Another learning center for study of Buddhism was in Nalanda, Bihar at border of Nepal. Knowledge was given on fine arts, medicine, maths, astronomy, politics, and war art. Around ten thousands of pupils studied there and some become scholars for their country like Korea, Japan, Tibet, Indonesia, Persia and Turkey.

Government is taking necessary steps to increase literacy rate for young generation. They made compulsory education for ages between 6 and 14 and also introduced significant reservation of seats for disadvantaged class in our society.
