The literacy rate can be observed that male and female literacy rate is continuously going up since 1951 in the Gujarat state. And by gender its shows that as compare to male literacy rate the female literacy rate is growing fast since 1951 to 2011. Gender gap result shows that between the male and female literacy gap is decline through the 1961. Data also shows that last 10 years gender gap is rapidly decline, it is because of government initiative as well as people awareness. In comparison of India, nearby 18 districts of Gujarat we find the finest literacy rate than the whole Nation. On the other side year 2011, according to census, 15 districts were found in such conditions where the literacy rate was low in comparison of average ratio of Gujarat, besides 8 districts has the less literary rate averagely which shows the regional inequality breaks the development standard.
