Ahead of fourth anniversary, Utkarsh app nets more than 1 crore users, sees 37% growth in FY23


Jodhpur, 14th November 2022: One of the big changes in the pandemic has been the growing popularity of online education and courses. App-based education became the cornerstone of the future of ed-tech not only in India but globally. Online education allowed students to study from anywhere in the comfort of their homes without being subject to the time constraints of physical classes.

Jodhpur-based Utkarsh classes and Edutech as one of the first companies that caught this digital shift early and launched the Utkarsh: Smart learning App, four years ago. The app has more than 1 crore downloads and offers educational material and revision classes to millions of users across the country. The online courses are also available at an average ticket size of Rs. 2500 on the App, making it one of the most accessible courses. Despite the end of the pandemic and the beginning of offline classes countrywide, the app has seen healthy growth, both in terms of user growth and engagement.

Utkarsh Classes and Edutech started as a brick-and-mortar institute for government test preparation in 2002. “Our mission was to make quality education accessible to all. The launch of the Utkarsh app in 2018 was an attempt in that direction. We are happy that it has helped guide millions of students. It blends in our mission of offering top-class educational facilities at an affordable price point,” said Dr Nirmal Gehlot, Founder and CEO, of Utkarsh Classes and Edutech.

The app offers many features such as live & recorded lectures by experts through 4k-interactive panels, unlimited access to online courses, topical quizzes and all-India test series, smart E-notes, audio lectures and the ability to add web links for further reference. These features ensure a holistic learning experience for the aspirants and ensure that they do not miss out on key details in an online class.

Making a mark
Over the past four years, Utkarsh has witnessed many successful students successfully clearing exams after studying via the Utkarsh app.
“A juice vendor from Jodhpur cracked the Rajasthan PTI exam by preparing from the App. The daughter of a High court driver managed to crack a seat for the prestigious Rajasthan Judicial Services. Another youngster helping his family run a store and enrolled in the offline programme also used the app to secure an all-India rank 4 in the SC/ST category in NEET-UG 2022. The app has allowed talented youngsters to follow their dreams and become successful. We are thrilled to have played a small part in their success,” Dr Gehlot added.
