Northeast has more readers than other states

NEW DELHI

Updated Tue, 20 Nov 2012 03:26 PM IST
"The north−eastern states of India, despite their economic backwardness, have a greater proportion of readers among its youth population. The survey results reveal that in the north−eastern states, 43 percent of youths are readers. While the central states have the largest block (85 percent) of non−readers, the northeast has the smallest (57 percent)," the report said.

The survey, published by National Book Trust, attempts to give an analytical and detailed account of the reading habits of literate youths in the northeast and their exposure to different forms of media.

 The report also says even though literacy among general castes dominates northern, eastern and north−eastern states, the northeast has a higher proportion (23 percent) of literate youths from the Scheduled Tribes.

Moreover, the northeastern states have a relatively higher concentration of Muslim literate youths since about a third of the youths in the region are Muslims, followed by 18 percent Christians.

The report will be released by Human Resource Development Minister M.M. Pallam Raju Tuesday.
