The beautiful small state of Tripura offers immense opportunities for students from within and outside the region. As per the census of 2001, literacy rate of Tripura is 73.66%. The Government of the state has taken a number of steps to develop the educational set up of the region. A free and compulsory education policy was introduced by the government that caters free education to the students who fall in the age group of 6 to 14 years of age.
