Pakistan Literacy Rate

Pakistan Literacy Rate projected to reach 60 Percent by 2015.Although Pakistan has been successful in making very attractive and positive educational policy for the state but due to several laps and loop holes in the management as well as in the negative intentions of the corrupt politicians of the state which have not implicated and are unable to give practical demonstrations for the country. This negative approach has adversely affected the literacy rate of the country. According the consensus of 2011 Pakistan is currently ranking as 113th amongst the 120 countries of the world as far as the literacy rate being considered which a big shame is for the representatives of the country. The overall literacy rate of the country is 56% which is very low but as far as the intuitions of the analyst it expected to grow to almost 61% till 2015.

Pakistan Literacy Rate

Pakistan Literacy RateOne of the main reasons behind this drawback and these shameful stats for the country lays the wrong intentional government and administration. According to the financial analysts the government at the present is spending just 2.3% of their total Gross National Product GNP and just 9.9% of the total budget allocation being reserved for educational purposes in Pakistan which is very low as compared to our neighbors which includes India which spends almost 4.5% of their total GNP and about 12.7% of their total budget on educational practices and at the same time Bangladesh spends just 2.1% of their GNP but 14.1% of their total financial budget.

If we make an analysis of the literacy rate per the age group of the people the stats are more shocking and stranger. The people who are ranging in the age group of 55-64 years is just 30% which justified because the old traditional people were not that much focused towards the education as the modern people are. The people among the age group of 45-54 years are just nearly 40% which is very low as compared to the other countries. These people are the one which are sitting on the higher post and designations and are not properly literate.

Now let us have the overview of the people who fall the age bracket of 25-34 years; the literacy rate in this age following is as low as 50% which defines that half of the youth of the country is still uneducated and illiterate. The literacy rate per the consensus of the records the people under the age group of 15-24 is just about 60% which is pretty much improved and better as compared as the literacy rate of other age groups.


  1. The definition of literacy in Pakistan is read and write. According to many time changing Pakistan constitution, now only university graduate are legible for election in parliaments. What is the rate of university graduates in Pakistan? Very low. I think this country dis allow majority to be elects. Less candidate easy to buy . This is old theory of Ayub Khan basic democracy, the 1st Ruler of Marshall law in Pakistan
    Please don’t say that these newly elected have done any better job then the previous MNA’s

  2. Govt. ko chayea k jo bhe Boys or Girls intermediate pass kar lain wo 10,10 bacho ko parhana likhna sikhayen.I hope k iss say boht fark pry ga.

  3. too low rate because every person who can write his name and read a sentence is considered literate
    Now you can guess we are far behind

  4. Matter of shame, being at 113th. Corruption needs be eliminated from country. Education remains backbone of any state. Well its not just education, our health roads buildings everything has disappeared. The reason is just CORRUPTION. I pray to ALLAH PAK that the politicians may get lost from our country.
    (The comment is for corrupt illiterate bad character politicians, anyone can assess himself/ herself to include or exclude in this bracket)

  5. Pakistan main litearcy rate ko baranay kay liay ausataza ko kerdar ada karna hai.matric pass teachers kay bajay graduate ausataza say kam lana ho ga.nai taleemi policy ko pori tearah nafiz karna ho ga.AZAD KASHMIR main ak bahot achi taleemi policy tashkeel de ge hai kaken badqismati say amal nai howa.

  6. agar ham apnay apnay mohallay ki base par asay parents tak approach karain jo apnay bachu ko school nai bhejtay…aor un ko motivate karain to mera khyal ha ye mulk aor qaum ki bhooot bari khidmat ho gi…….

  7. As far as education is concerned present federal government have been totally failed. No positive steps are eradicate sinse start of the government. Even though a fewer one previously introduced innovations were terminated. But current provincial governments still provided some platform to make the students able to curve their destinations
