Along with this, in order to reach every nook and corner of the country, it has also stepped into the B2B model and is now collaborating with various book-sellers in different states to provide hardcopy of books to the students that are prepared under the guidance of its experienced educators. Furthermore, it is joining hands with some existing libraries to provide a peaceful learning environment and various educational resources to the students at very nominal charges.
Ajay Kumar, Founder and CEO of Dhurina shares his views on the spike in user base and said, “It’s much more important to focus on what are you going to do next, hence our main focus will be to get more potential students living in rural areas and Tier-III, IV cities who cannot afford expensive education at urban coaching institutes and provide them the best quality education at very nominal prices. We want to invest more towards adding new courses and faculties in the application”.
