The demand for education grows only with raising of the incomes of the population and therefore poverty becomes an obstacle to further development in the country. The first chapter of the thesis defines the concept of poverty in general, provides different ways how to measure it and represents some global concepts and strategies for combating it. The second chapter describes the evolution of the Indian economy since independence to the present and focuses on areas which have caused its upsurge. The chapter also examines how current crisis has influenced these areas and provides some characteristics and facts about poverty in India. The final chapter evaluates the Indian educational system, pointing out its weaknesses and outlines the solutions that would enable its access to the wider sections of the population and improvement of its quality.
