Today, India is home to more than 365 million youth with immense potential to fast-track its growth. The National Policy for Skill Development (NPSD), 2009 has espoused a target of 500 million trained youth by 2022. The recent developments in online learning come after realization of the fact that lack of education infrastructure, up-to-date course curricula and qualified teachers are some of the main reasons behind the unskilled white collared workforce in the country.

However, now, thanks to technology, India is becoming an education hub all over again.
