Education and expansion of education have been the main task of any society. Owing to its heterogeneity and pressure from a population of over one billion, India needs more rigorous attempts to elevate its education status; though some of its parts are well socially developed. Further, with the deployments of computers in the educational institutions and infrastructural developments to meet the computer enabled services, remarkable growth has been observed. While discussing the status of the growth of computing technology for education, emerging computing and infrastructural environments and other related developments have also been discussed in this paper.
