The pattern of educational opportunities and attainment across states can be associated with the level of government expenditure allocated in different states. The percentage of government expenditure on education of the total government expenditure shows the importance of education in government programmes. During 1952-2010, the allocation of educational expenditure as a percentage of total government expenditure increased from 7.92% to 11.1% and as a percentage of GDP increased from 0.64% to 3.25%. In 2009-10, the per capita education expenditure was Rs 12,500 in Himachal Pradesh and Rs 2,200 in Punjab. It is evident from the fact that the allocation of educational expenditure in Himachal Pradesh was very high as compared to Punjab. Thus, it brings regional differences in educational attainment in India.
