Abstract: In India, education provides a vital opportunity for social and economic development. By contributing to the economy of the country and the society, an educated Indian woman will have a positive impact on Indian society. Women who are educated reduce the likelihood that their children will die before they are five. Educational opportunities for girls will play a very significant role in the development of the country. As employment plays a crucial role in improving women’s status in society, education of girls is of prime importance in any programme geared towards empowering women (Dominic and Jothi, 2012). As well as enabling the development of half of human capital, it also enhances the quality of life both in and outside the home. A formal and a non-formal education structure are important components of the Indian education system. As well as online education and distance education, other educational programs are also formulated to motivate the girls to go to school. Every educational programme is designed to educate every girl child. There are numerous negative effects of low literacy not only on women’s lives but also on their families and the economy of the country. In this regard, raising the level of education of girls is of prime importance. It has recently been demonstrated that improving girls’ educational levels has a significant impact on their health and economic future, which, in turn, improves the prospects of their communities as a whole of their entire community. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights declared that education is more than an end in itself; it is the basis for lifelong learning and human development.
