Literacy Rate among Tribals

 

The Ministry of Tribal Affairs is implementing the education-oriented schemes which include Post-Matric Scholarship for ST students, Hostels for ST girls and boys, Establishment of Ashram School in Tribal Sub-Plan Areas, Upgradation of Merit through coaching and remedial classes, Rajiv Gandhi National Fellowship for ST students, Top Class Education for ST students and National Overseas Scholarship for ST students. These are supplementary to the efforts made by other Ministries to improve the literacy level of students belonging to the Scheduled Tribe communities, besides usual reservation for ST students. These schemes along with various schemes of other line Ministries have resulted in higher Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER) by the ST boys and girls.

The rate of literacy and the break-up of male and female literacy rates among the Scheduled Tribes, State/UT-wise, is given as under:
