A person who can both read and write a simple message in at least one language is to be considered literate. Those who are not able to do so are to be considered not literate and will be assigned code 00. Those who are literate but never attended any school, will be assigned code 01. Those who are by definition literate but are yet to pass primary standard examination will get code 02. Similarly codes 03, 04, and 05 will indicate the successive higher standard of examinations passed. Matriculation, School Final, Pre-University, Higher Secondary and Intermediate examination will come under Secondary (code 05).

ii) When more than one of the codes 06 to 08 are relevant, the code indicating the degree last obtained will be considered.
