Nationwide survey conducted by Dhurina Ventures Private Limited, India’s leading e-Learning platform for state and regional competitive exams, revealed that Covid-19 across the country hasn’t discouraged the aspirations of the young minds across tier 3 cities and rural sectors.
The survey findings further revealed that over 2 Million students are or have been preparing for various state-level competitive exams through virtual coaching and mobile application. A detailed demographic analysis states that 65% of students belong to rural areas of Ajmer and Kishangarh in Rajasthan, Patna and Bhagalpur in Bihar, Hansi, Sirsa, Fatehabad and Jind in Haryana , Jammu, Kargil, Pulwama and Srinagar in Jammu & Kashmir along with a substantial share coming from Sahibganj, Jamtara, Ranchi in Jharkhand. Also 20 percent students appear from semi – rural areas and 15 percent traction comes from urban setups.
With greater focus on women empowerment and various initiatives undertaken by the government sector and private institutions, a statistical markup in the ratio of male versus female students shows a positive trajectory with 60 percent male and 40 percent female students appearing for these highly prestigious posts and examinations.
Dhurina credits internet penetration and increased smartphone usage as key factors amongst the students and parents leading to acceptability and growth of e-learning platforms in the country. Shedding light on the contributions made towards upliftment of the rural sector, Sachin Sardana, Co-Founder and COO of Dhurina said, “We won’t let any stones left unturned for our students. These aspiring students are the future of the nation. Dhurina has been working tirelessly for providing children education and related resources for their better future despite the unlimited constraints that they face. We strongly believe that by providing exposure and imparting quality coaching to the untapped potential the country prospers with greater momentum.”
“Times are changing. Our greater focus is on empowering India’s most potential rural and tier 3 areas for the betterment of the underprivileged students. These are the students who used to stay deprived of higher education because of unavailability of funds or due to the absence of top-notch institutions near their area. Right coaching helps students explore their talents and achieve outstanding victories in their respective fields along with a benefit of job security”, added Ajay Kumar Rathore, CEO, Dhurina.
