It's not the skills or the capacity is necessary required to help the people. It's the responsibility which is more required and leadership qualities is also one which is required. So I think education is not a barrier to becoming a politician.

Hai friends, according to me, educational qualification is a must for politics. The current system in India was very worst. Because they didn't know their duties. Corruption and development will be change only by the means of good rulers. So, minimum qualification in education is a must.

Hi friends, I'm T.K.S.Prasad.

Yes, every Indian citizen should need a minimum educational qualification to get into politics. Then only they can understand the problems of our people. Nowadays, we know an MLA who doesn't have even SSC qualification assisting IAS officers as their secretaries. So there should be some minimum qualification based on the grade level.

Hello Everyone,

In my point of view, every politician must have the minimum qualification. Because then only they know the basic problems between people. Suppose he/she uneducated means, they don't know how to face one problem. They need others help. They need others help means they are not politicians right. For example, one person is well-educated means they know the value of the problem, different ideas, how to face the problem? They will reach the success path of the problem. Then our society having no problems and it will go calm. Nowadays in our society facing so many problems because most of the uneducated politicians. So every human having the minimum level of knowledge.

Just think about a scenario, wherein a few people are queued up for a job interview for an Automobile Company's Engineer's post. Out of the lot, One is uneducated illiterate but has an experience of over 10 years of running his own Automobile garage, and the other one is an Automobile Engineer from One of the Top Engineering institutes in the country with a first class degree. Who will the company Hire? As per my Opinion, Although the illiterate person has an experience in the same field, but due to lack of education, his vision, capacity to learn more and the skills required to work in a corporate sector is lacking. He certainly will have to work much harder in the job to reach higher and also give best productivity to the company. Whereas the person who is the graduate in the field, has competence, Wide thinking ability, Higher IQ and skills to take decisions using his learnings. It becomes evident to hire him for the better future of the company. In the similar context, India is a huge Democracy, in order to make it much more progressive and competitive we need our decision makers to be learned, tech savvy, proactive and agiler in solving the issues being faced by us. It becomes evident that more learned and educated people in the system will make it easier for our new Generations. The vision will be better and younger. I seriously hope that Govt of India will listen to this and introduce mandatory Education levels in our democracy. Way Back in 1950, when our constitution was made, it was correct to exclude Education as the mandatory requirement to be an MP or an MLA, because at that time literacy rate was only 18%, whereas now we have Literacy rate more than 74%, then why can't we change now.

I strongly condemn the practice of electing illiterate politicians. We Indians talk about rights, freedom, honour, education, equality etc, but when it comes to electing a right person to support our voice, then we foolishly support a person with the criminal background or a person who runs his political chariot on the basis of caste, religion, and gender. If we expect our parliament and legislative assemblies to promote good quality of education then we should put some right people to understand the concern. It would be an over expectation from an Illiterate MP or MLA who has no idea about fundamental rights, dates, constitution, etc. And if has no idea about his/her country, culture, values then how could he/she debate in parliament on various issues of law and policies. Over 70% of the politicians in Parliament and legislative assemblies do not give input while debates and question hour sessions because most of them either elected by playing on the religion or caste. How can we even dream for a better India by giving the command of our nation in such hands those who can't even speak proper Hindi and English in India or in international platforms? Fighting for the right to education for the children is good but why don't we implement it on our politicians. Our 5 years children are not going to run this country just after school. I am not saying that illiterate people are good politicians but the ratio of illiterate cum good politicians is very less. We can't deny that education broadens the mental horizon, it sparks the prudence and vigilance of a brain, that is why education is so much important. If we look behind then our nation had more educated politicians during independence in comparison to todays' scenario. Now you decide that whether we are progressing or ruining our nation.

I think education must for every politician. Because if he educated then he can know what are the developments to be done.

In our society. Many of leaders work for the money and shows some work.

Without educating without any common sense a person can't implement his ideas to developed at least the city.

For example - Educated person get different ideas to implement.

But uneducated person will take d help of d others persons.

He can be confusing what to be predicted there.

Without any knowledge, common sense, logical thinking, self-confidence, and dare to do work.

A person can't be do anything without knowledge.

So every human being must be educated.

This is my view.

Hello everyone.

My point is that if you all saying education is must for politician but for politician its not difficult to get that degree with money and if he doing degree with the help of money then you don't know as he attended the college or not. As per my suggestion politician must be aware about his current social situations and international language for communication. And he must have that eagerness to any good thing in society which is more needful for everybody. And not only positive thinking is important. He must be realistic positive thinker in every condition.

Good afternoon to all.

My point of view is that Educational qualification is not only for to become eligible for the post. As you, all know that today many educated people are kept in redhanded by the vigilance. So just think a second if they are in the low post and doing corruption then if we say about the politician they have to serve the total area of boundary assignment to him.

2-most of the elected people are sponsored by the verities of the political party.

So overall I will come from this conclusion that not only the educational Qualification should compulsory but also a psychological test should be conducted through a practical field to "Know about the mentality, moral power, and eligibility test to be a good leader".

According to our constitution, the criteria to stand an election in India is only that the candidate must be Indian citizen & the minimum age of the candidate is 25 years. Again our constitution says all the citizen have an equal right to give their vote & stand in the election. According to 2011 census, India's literacy rate is 74%. So if we will tell that our politician should be educated that means rest of 26% people will lose their right to stand in the election.

In India many peoples who are not able to get an education because of their financial reasons. So if they have lost their right to contest an election, they may think that there is no benefit for them to give their vote in the election, where they can't participate.

At last, I will say that Indian literacy rate has increased from our independence for which rise in the number of educated politicians in our country. So when literacy rate of India is more than 95% like US &UK, then automatically all the politicians are educated. So we should think about our literacy rate rather than the education of our politicians.

Hello everyone,

Looking into this matter very deeply, I feel like that every politician whether good or bad must have an educational qualification. Every politician ought to have an educational qualification. What I believe is that education gives us the knowledge and enhances our way of thinking in a different manner. For example, in villages most of the families make their children work along with them for an extra income in the family. To them, education is a worthless job and wastage of money. Unless they get the proper education their mindset won't work properly and can't think the correct way. Education is what makes a complete man and since politicians have a great role in the managing of state affairs and many more things, I think that education to them is necessary to them. If not to the fullest then at least a qualification to every politician is needed for our country. Although education has negative effects too but those are very negligible. In the most, every politician's interest must lie within the country itself. Unless there is devoted and committed politician in our society who will look for the betterment and social upbringing of the people till then our country will suffer from backwardness. Education is only a support from behind to the committed politicians. This is all that I think.

Thank You.

So that a leader can perform well on the platform that is provided by the people.

And I think there should be some type of practical exam should be conducted before the nominees for the election is to be done under the guidance of ELECTION COMMISSION OF INDIA.

So that we can figure out whether the nominees is able to solve the problem or able to perform in pressure condition or not. AND having the basic knowledge of Indian administration or not?

For becoming a politician in today's world one should have knowledge of each and every thing. Otherwise, he will not be able to take decisions which are profitable to the people.

So in the case of politicians as he is a big post and he has to take difficult decisions and he will have to manage various critical situation he will have to be educated.

Yes, educate qualification is more important to politicians because through education we can learn anything. Our way of thinking also expands. Technically, generally we can try to know the problem, if politicians are not educated then how can they know what the problem is and how they will give proper solution to a particular problem.

Politicians will have the responsibility to solve the problems in the society. To solve a problem they should have the overview of that particular issue. To solve a problem education is not enough but also needed maturity mind then only they can give the correct solution.

We need to give natural solutions because when we are trying to solve a problem sometimes some works are doing harm to nature, this we don't want.

Be mature and at the same time save nature. This is also one kind of ruling our home.

Hello, everyone.

I want to share my opinion it's not at all required to have an educational qualification for the politicians. Introducing necessary educational qualification for eligibility for contesting elections, in a country like India, where about 80% of the population is illiterate, will go much against the spirit of democracy for the sole reason as it will deprive the majority of the population, their right to contest elections.

A good politician must be a good leader first, who can take good decisions, empathize with people, have a vision for the future and of course must know the way to get there.

It doesn't really matter if the person owns some degree or not-what matters are his love for the nation. The person should be honest, patriot and devoted to the country. And unfortunately, there is no such degree best owned for exhibiting these qualities!

Now let us come to the present scenario where we have a highly qualified legislature of MLAs and MPs certified from around the world's best universities, from Harvard, oxford to St.Masuchauttes.

But let me remind you that most of them have their best foot forward in all the scams taking from the 2-G scam to the coal scam and what not. The nation is now fed up of people with high acadimity, all we want is people with HONESTY, INTEGRITY, and COMMITMENT !

Hi everyone,

I want to share some of my views about the topic 'Education is necessary for politicians'. For this point, some are advantages and some are disadvantages. First of all, I want to say advantages that are if any politician who is educated then he can know what he wants to do and he know about the rules of the political awareness. Then he can understand the problem for the society and they can solve it easily. They have obedient, honesty, courtesy, thinking capability about any problem.

Some of the disadvantages of this topic are they don't know who to rule the society or country. Sometimes it is not mandatory the people who have not educated also they are ruling the society, but they have some experience otherwise they won't be in politics anymore. If anyone who are not educated they want to know how to serve the country or society.

What I have to conclude that anyone who is educated or not they want to know what is does or don't about that.

Hello everyone,

I would like to add my point to our group discussion. I think education plays a very important role in everyone's life for well-being, taking decisions properly, to have proper education and for many more reasons. I would like to share my own personal experience as once there was a school annual celebration and our area's corporate was the chief guest for that session and when I was told to give a speech for encouraging student's achievements, he was totally silent without knowing how to address the gathering.

It was not that he don't know to speak and give speech in public places, but it was all about not being educated, not knowing to represent anyone properly, lack of English language, just think of my friends when politicians aren't educated, they are not capable of handling situations when comes to nation's pride, technical, financial sectors etc. It's not just giving a good speech in front of public and getting votes, it is all about how they will do it practically in implementing all their words into action.

In my opinion, education should be made compulsory for politicians. In India, for the post of peon, qualification is needed. Education is the only thing which makes the difference between two. From 1947 till now we are still developing a country. Our politicians are corrupted. They just want a name, fame, and money (exceptions are always there). They don't understand their social responsibility. If politicians become educated then most of the problems in India can be solved easily.

According to my opinion education play the most important role in our life. Because an educated person thinks differently from an uneducated person. If a person is educated then he/she must be a good team leader, think active, how to overcome a pressure and believe in planning and execute.

We know that politicians have a more responsibility to manage a district or a state or a country and a people of a country giving the vote by hopping free corruption, developing an infrastructure of a town, woman safety and opening more and more college for poor children. This will happen only when politicians must be educated, so there must be a minimum qualification for politicians.

Thank you.

As per my point of view, only Education make a man smarter is the wrong thing. Every person has the different type of view. Sometimes well-educated people also do some foolish things. Apart from this if we are talking about politician then only trust, perfect decision making, continuity, honesty are the essential things for any politician. So education is not a mandatory thing for any politician.

Hello everyone,

I would like to say education is must require not only for a politician but also all people who live in the world. Because education does not only improve our skill but also give a better understanding to taking a right decision. And if I talking about politician then for a politics education play a vast role I wanna give an example if we choose two politicians one is educated and other is uneducated then educated person always take a smart decision and solve more problem technically but an uneducated person never think technically.

So finally, smartness and technical thought always come from education.

Dear colleagues,

Suppose if our health minister is a doctor then I think he will know better what are the schemes and policy for the common man to be healthy life rather than normal human being.

It means that a well educated with experience in their respective field can work excellent for society.

Another point to NOTA is, we must cooperate with govt and must do our social duty. Only government and their policy can not develop India without our help.

Thanks a lot for hearing me.

Educated people are being aware of the deep knowledge of rules, regulation, laws, benefactors for the development of the nation. A politician on other hand knows the peripheral details of the required one. So, one who isn't corrupted and educated can understand the problems and articulate himself which leads progress of the society.

Education is a must. WITHOUT IT, you can not run the country efficiently. Let us say you have experience, but if you don"t have a basic education you can not act smart. An illiterate man can not serve the country because you have to convince the people around you by your quality of education. Why do I say that education is a must because You can not make a decision by your experience?

Hello everyone,

I would like to add few points from my side in our group discussion. I think yes education is a good thing that if anyone is well educated he/she may think in a better and broader way. But if we are talking about politics, it depends on the position of the politician where he/she is standing, if we talk about some small level politics then instead of education experience matters more. But if we are talking about higher level politics like cabinet then of course education matters a lot like in position of finance ministry and ministry of external affairs and ministry of human resource and development here the leader must have a good educational qualification and along with that he/she must have a clear intention towards the development of our society and country.

That's all that I wanted to add.

Thank you all for cooperation.

Hello everyone,

I would like to add some points in our discussion that "Is education necessary for politicians". I think that yes education gives the knowledge about the constitution and laws and also improves awareness about our country and society, but if anyone is having these qualities without good qualifications then it is okay.

Rather than focusing on educational qualification one should be targeted by his past records in politics if he/she is already been in politics earlier and he/she must not have any criminal records and also should have a clear intention for the welfare and development of our country and society.

That's all from my side.

Thank you.

Hello everyone,

My point of view education doesn't matter a lot. The matters a lot are qualities like contemplation, peer, attention, alertness, foresight towards the things and mainly experiences in life. If these qualities are available in politician then our country will be developed. The best examples are the scientists they were also not educated but still they researched and created a new innovation because all above qualities. So educated matters only as a medium to know the things nothing else.

Thank you.

No qualification is needed for becoming a politician, but a basic qualification is needed to hold the posts such as PM, MLAs etc. It will help in foreign exchange and communication. It will help the politicians to think globally rather than locally. Education can provide them an edge in dealing with the situations and problems in a smarter way.

India is a democratic country and democracy are the government of the people, by the people and for the people. If a person does not have the access to the basic education in his childhood because of some reasons but wants to oppose a party or its decision or wants to serve his/her country by entering into politics then education should not become an obstacle in his way of forming a government.

There are many uneducated politicians who have brought various good changes to the society with their deeds. Eg Vatal Nagraj, a standard 10th failure and ex-MLA of Chamarajnagar, contributed a lot to preserving the Kannada Culture and Glory.

Hello everyone.

I truly agree with you all but I think that educational qualifications are the most especially for politicians. It is because all the decisions regarding the betterment of our country are taken by our elected representatives. So it is very common perception that a well educated person will run the country in a better way compared to one who is illiterate or not well educated. That's all. Thanks a lot.

Hello everyone, I'm Mounika Rayaprolu. The topic given is quite simple, but weighted. Let us ask a question. To reach our destination do only getting driving is important if there is also necessary to know how to reach the destination. It is important to know how to reach the destiny also. Yes, we can reach it though we don't know how to reach, but it causes delay or disturbances. Now apply this question to our political system. As a politician, he/she should have the qualities of leadership, helping nature, love and respect of the country, serve for the nation. But in addition he should have a minimum knowledge of the techniques of how to rule a country. The education doesn't mean degree. It means ability to sense what is right and what is wrong. In that way education is important for every individual and more for a politician.

I'm of the opinion that educational qualification is no need for politicians.

But the most important one is they should something about current affairs and laws which are followed in their region.

According to me more than educational qualification, politicians should be judged on ethical and humanitarian grounds. There should be a parameter where one should assess how much of humanitarian and welfare work has the person done before they think themselves as being able to represent the people of their region.

Most people who are actually into welfare work do not come into mainstream politics. If we bring such people into our political system who have a strong drive to work for the welfare of the people and who have proved it by their past track record. It will help to clean the political system of our country.

Hi all, warm greetings!

There are various types of works in all our the world, some need higher qualification some needs no education but skills and ability as well as dedication must require in every field. Those who have higher educational qualification but don't have the skills for a particular work which he/she need to accomplish so what is the need of that degree of qualification.

So as per my perception for any politicians things which really matters alot are "Patriotism, Leadership skills, & Dedication towards work".
