Right to Education (RTE) Act. 2009 is clearly mentioned in article no. 21A of Indian constitution. According to this act, primary education is the birth of every child aged between 6-14 years. Sarva Siksha Abhiyan of 2001 has taken various steps for the universalization of primary education of the country which is the largest primary education programme of the world. Gunotsav is the primary education development programme which is adopted from the Gujrat state of India. The first phase of Gunotsav was introduced in Assam in 2017. Gunotsav is mainly observed for the quality improvement of elementary education in Assam. It tries to fulfil the mandate of RTE, 2009 where all the children of our country aged 6-14 years have the constitutional right to receive the quality of elementary education in the country. So, the Assam Government has already conducted two phases of Gunotsav programme in the state i.e. in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
