DIKSHA’s had a stellar few months. In February 2021, the Indian government’s edtech app hit 10 million installs. That traction helped it break into the top 5 education apps being downloaded on the Google Playstore. That kind of growth—just three years removed from its launch in 2017—would make any private edtech app green with envy. Unlike its for-profit peers, though, DIKSHA is 100% free to use, and owned and operated by the Ministry of Education (MoE).
DIKSHA, or Digital Infrastructure for Knowledge Sharing, isn’t just an app though.
