It occurs because of some reasons:

Lack of school without schooling children are unable to receive mandate and become illiterate. The primary effects of illiteracy is structural unemployment.

As the economy moves more towards knowledge economy illiteracy is a essential skill for individuals and state to complete in the global economy. Social cultural barriers. Illitrate parents/guardians. Lack of awareness and consciousness.

A major stumbling block in the growth and the development of the country.

Effects of illiteracy:

• Illiteracy lowers the rate of technological advancement in the society.
