INTRODUCTION               

It is observed that the number of girls as against boys in certain states is declining which is a matter of great concern. The females are even forced to give birth to the male child. In such circumstances, the education of women needs to be used and effective means for their empowerment and education will prepare them to have control over their lives. The mindset which militates against the girl child could not keep pace with economic progress and literacy. The Govt. of India declared elementary education as a basic human right of every child. The Union Government of India has taken various steps to uplift the status of women by implementing various schemes including free education for girls.
