Indian parents are among the world's most keen parents who like to spend time with their children on school work and are also optimistic about education standards. They prefer to give their children the best education in a suitable environment that might help them achieve their goals amidst rising competition. However, several parents believe that the government job exam is the most extensive exam to crack as it invites more than the expected number of candidates to appear.
To make government job exam preparation easy, Anil Nagar and Saurabh Bansal founded Adda247 in 2016. It is a Government Job Preparation platform and a vernacular test prep platform catering to the learning needs of aspirants in more than 12 Indian languages.
