Education is a basic human right. The development of a country depends on its people- more the number of people get educated, higher will be the progress rate. More industrial firms will be set up to recruit the people.
India, is still a developing country and however, the corona virus pandemic has slowed its development rate. India has a population of about 1.38 Billion (as of reports on 20<sup>th</sup> May, 2021) where almost 72.2% of the population lives in villages, that is, the rural civilization. Most of the villages of the country still are under developed, orthodox, where people do not have access to education – due to lack of sources and lack of finance. Schools should be set up at such villages so that the villagers can get educated- free of cost, or at least at minimum expenses. This will lead to the development of the country in the long run at a faster rate.
Most of the students even in the urban cities get dropped out of school or colleges because of the high fees rates at institutes. Most students have to leave their dreams behind because of the higher rates. India has been losing intelligent minds because of its high education rates. These high figures are consuming millions of dreams. People who can afford leave the country as they get better opportunities at other countries at lower fees. India, again, lost it intelligent brain to a foreign county.
Thus, it should do something with respect to its education rates. Most of the families are unable to pay the high amounts of school fees during this pandemic. Unfortunately the children are the ones who suffer due to the high rates.
India has to rethink about its education policy. The tough exams, less number of seats in colleges, reserved seats, high fee rates, high education loan rates are consuming many intelligent minds to other countries. Moreover most of them do not get a chance to continue with their studies due to lack of finance. This will, however, slow down the progress rate of the nation.
