The present paper attempts to analyze the role of the state in the development of female education in Kashmir within the initial years of post-independent India. As after 1947 initiatives were taken to enhance the condition of people of the state particularly the women, but the vital changes in female literacy occurred due to the steps taken by the government both at state and national level. The researcher will try to explore the initiatives taken by government particularly at the state level. The present endeavor is also aimed at analyzing the varied kinds of educational challenges that women faced both socially and politically.
