It has also launched post-graduate courses and PW Skills for career building and tech skilling.

Last month, it acquired iNeuron to expand its offerings in the upskilling category.

PW has built a team of 6,500+ employees, including over 2,000 teachers and educational experts.

PW offers both free and paid online courses to students. It also provides offline and hybrid coaching through its Vidyapeeths and Pathshalas across India. The company has a pool of educational content available in nine languages, including Hindi, English, Bengali, Marathi, Telugu, and Gujarati.
