Lucknow, Dec 5(GCBusiness) Lucknow-based ed-tech startup EduGorilla has partnered with a leading publication house Oswaal Books to foray into offline education space.
Both the companies have launched their first book on Non-Technical Popular Categories (NTPC) examination conducted by Railway Recruitment Board (RRB). This happens to be the first among the series of books to be launched in a year, catering to over 100 competitive examinations. The entire content of the book– practice tests, previous year papers, solutions, answer keys has been conceptualized by EduGorilla whereas Oswaal Books provided its print expertise.
Priced at Rs 249, the book has already hit the market and is available at all leading bookstores besides Amazon and Flipkart. It also has a Kindle edition which is priced at Rs 261.45.
Mr Rohit Manglik, CEO, EduGorilla, said in a statement here on Thursday that, ”We are thrilled to collaborate with Oswaal Books for this initiative. Being well-established in the print domain, Oswaal Books was the first choice for us. The project is in line with our collective goal to be a one-stop solution for all competitive examinations.”
”The launch of the book came at an opportune time. Since the examination has been delayed, students will get more time to prepare and the format of the book will go a long way in aiding students to solve questions with a higher degree of accuracy and within the stipulated time,” he said.
Mr Naresh Jain, Managing Director, Oswaal Books, said, ”EduGorilla has already carved a niche in e-learning space and the leadership of Oswaal Books in the print space is well-known. We decided to explore synergies in an endeavour to help students to move closer to their career goals. The book has been prepared by a team of expert academicians after thorough research and analysis of the RRB NTPC exam pattern, syllabus, and previous years’ papers.”
EduGorilla had earlier launched a test series catering to driving licence examinations in five countries, including India (Regional Transport Office), United Kingdom (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency), Australia (Driver Knowledge Test), the United States and Canada (Department of Motor Vehicles, National Council Licensure Examination).
