Union government has introduced a programme ‘Sakshara Bharat Mission - 2012’ to increase literacy rate.

A list of illiterates in the age group of 15-35 years will be prepared according to the statistics of the 2001 census. The list excludes those who have participated in CIP, PRI, LTS and various other literacy programmes. The list shall comprise 15 pc men, 85 pc women with particular emphasis on Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and minority communities. The approval of the respective GPs should be obtained for the list.

The programme ends on March 21, 2012. Lok Shikshana Samitis will be  constituted at Gram Panchayat, taluk and district levels. The objective of Sakshara Bharat Mission is to throw new light on the need to build a literate society. The programme will be implemented in 365 districts of 26 states in the country which have less than 50 pc literacy. The programme is being implemented in 17 districts in Karnataka. It remains to be seen whether this programme to will remain only on papers or succeeds to make a difference at the ground level.
