Around 64 percent of the rural Indian population is literate, the Census data showed.
Rajasthan leads the pack of illiterate states with 47.58 percent of its population falling in that category, followed by Madhya Pradesh with 44.19 percent of its people in rural areas being illiterate.

Bihar is at the third place with 43.85 percent and followed by newly carved state Telangana with 40.42 percent population belonging to this category.

However, the most literate state of Kerala has only 11.38 percent population falling under the illiterate category.
