Along with these launches, PW also announced discounts of up to 80 per cent on almost all its online courses to enhance access to quality education for students who cannot afford the course fees.

PW’s CEO and founder Alakh Pandey said, “’Padhai Ka Naya Andaaz’ is more than a theme; it is our commitment to provide a learning experience that transcends traditional boundaries, making education more personalised, effective, and engaging for every student. These initiatives are a testament to our belief in the transformative power of education and our commitment to empowering students with the tools they need to succeed.”
