New Delhi: Adda247, India’s No.1 government job preparation app has launched an initiative ‘Veer Samman’ on the occasion of the 76th Independence Day. With this initiative, the company aims to pay tribute to the defence martyrs of the country. Under this scheme, Adda247 will provide free and quality education to the families of deceased defence personnel including children and widows, for a year.
Adda247 has always believed in making education available and accessible to all. As a part of this campaign, children and widows of defence personnel can avail a year of free-of-cost education, by selecting any one of the numerous courses available on the platform. This will be applicable for any course available on the Adda247 platform across Banking, UPSC, SSC, Railways, Teaching, Defence, Gate and many other verticals. The registrations will be live on the 14th and 15th of August 2022 and learners can register themselves via the registration link. The enrolment to the course will be free of cost subject to the submission of relevant proofs.
Speaking about the initiative, Anil Nagar, Founder & CEO, Adda247 said, “Our vision at Adda247 has always been to give back to the nation. No better day to commit to this than today. Our campaign ‘Veer Samman’ is a small step to honour the sacrifices made by martyrs and give to their families the gift of learning and education. We are sure this is the start and we will continue to take the baton forward.”
Adda247 has played an instrumental role in the learning journeys of more than 50 million students beyond metropolitan cities by delivering quality online education in 11 vernacular languages. Last year, the company raised around $20 million in a Series B funding round led by Westbridge Capital. To add strategic value to Adda247’s offering in the UPSC and State PSC segment, the company recently acquired UPSC focused edtech platform, StudyIQ Education. To date, the company has helped in the learning journey of 22 Million monthly active users, out of which two million are paid users.
