Abstract
Right to Education is the primary right of every citizen of India, whether a child resides in a high profile society or in a far away not so developed secluded village, according to the Article 45 of Indian Constitution the basic elementary education must be provided to all the children up to the age of fourteen years. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can be utilized for the education sector. Education includes online, distance and part time education. There are unlimited applications of ICT in the real world. In his paper emphasis is on the education field. ICT can be used for providing education to the people who are not able to come to school due to various constraints. ICT can play great role in formal and non formal forms of education. Inclusive Education proposes all students are provided with equitable access to education within the context of a mainstream educational system and not in a segregated setting. There is now significant international and national legislation and policy in support of this model but for many countries achieving this ideal is proving to be a difficult reality. Accessible ICTs have a major role to play in enabling educational authorities, educators, students and parents to move towards a more inclusive educational system. However its role as a communication aid, pedagogical tool and means of access to previously inaccessible learning materials is still, in many countries, only just beginning to be explored.
