It is an undisputable statement that education is not an honour but it is a human right. The roots of education may be bitter but the fruits are sweet. Education comes under the concurrent subject and hence enactments are made by both State and Central governments. International Instruments provisions are incorporated into municipal laws. The importance of education is innumerable. The State within the limits of budget and domain tries to make actual provisions with respect to education, right to work, and financial assistance in cases of unemployment, old age allowances, illness, and incapacitation, and in other cases under Article 41. The author made an attempt to explain that education is a right both an educational right and a human right. Some landmark judgments are mentioned to concrete or solidify the idea of the right to both fundamental rights and human rights. It is now an undisputed fact that educational rights can be realised on a national level only through compulsory education, or better said, through free and compulsory primary education. However, due to the extensive poverty and various biases in society. Full access, quality, and equality of education have not been attained in suddenly and it is a long-time plan to reach sustainable development in elementary education in India. The author ends his research paper with a conclusion and recommendation.
