Abstract The structure of Indian education is top heavy and bottom weak. This is known as the inverse pyramid structure in the literature. This is an indication of a lacuna in the policy and reality in context of universal primary and elementary education. The aim is elusive now. Another side of this is free and compulsory education a propagated policy of the government for quite a long time. Is it really free Compulsory in what sense How much of monetary and other resources required for achieving this minimum requirement of education to meet the challenges of knowledge economy These are some of the questions that need probing in the present day context of globalisation and knowledge economy. There are issues related to the efficiency and equity in the context of socio-economic goals that call for a scrupulous examination. Are we equipped with the data to answer these questions Despite tremendous availability of data there exist some gaps.
