Education is seen as the best mechanism to achieve upward economic and social mobility by vulnerable masses. Even by the government, education is regarded as a proactive initiative through which it can hope to address the problem of regional imbalance in a sustainable manner. Many prior studies have identified various factors which have played significant role in depriving education for masses. However, studies which have identified magnitude of factors impact in depriving of education are scarce. The present study identifies the causal factors which have deprived years of schooling among households across Indian districts along with the magnitude of their impact. Present study affirms that although the causal factors of deprivation in years of schooling are same across all Indian districts, the magnitude of causal factors’ impact significantly differs across better off vis-à-vis worse of districts.
