The history of Adult Education in India began pre-independence and achieved prominence in the post independence phase. Each five year plan included adult education programmes and under the XI five year plan, a mission on literacy known as Saakshar Bharat began. This mission emphasized adult education as an important aspect of achieving the goal of a literate India. The seminar would highlight on the literacy scenario in India, education policies and programs, and how adult education contributes towards the holistic development of marginalized communities in India.
