Abstract

Literacy rate is one of the indicators of the overall development of any area. India has shown a remarkable increase in its crude literacy rate since its independence. But still it is well under the average literacy rate of the world. West Bengal being one of the most populous states of India has shown the same increasing trend in literacy rate. Paschim Medinipur is a very highly populated district of West Bengal. The western part of this district consists of Jhargram Subdivision which is economically very backward compared to the other Subdivisions of this district. This paper analyses the trend of literacy rate in different C.D Blocks of Jhargram Subdivision spatio-temporally over a period of forty years. It is found that the literacy rate is continuously increasing in the area but has remained lower than that of National and State levels. It has been found that although the educational level has increased in the area but in reality a large number of population of Binpur I, Binpur II, Gopiballavpur II and Nayagram, who are included in literate group, cannot write anything other than their names. Thus there exists a gap between actual number of educated people and literacy rate produced by Census of India.

Key Words
