Post budget quote on Ed Tech by Mr Manit ParikhCountry Head IndiaELSA Corp  (English Language Speech Assistant Corporation), “For India to have a $5 trillion economy, the youth have a key role to play in enabling this goal. The advantage of the ‘youth dividend’ needs to be channelised and enabled to put the country on the global map. There is a huge demand for individuals in various industries ccountries internationally as well. However, the skills do not match in accordance to demand by employers. So, by the government proposal of Rs 3,000 crore it allows the country to create quality skill development which will be available at affordable cost, focusing on 5 key components that are Visual, Reading, Listening, Speaking and Thinking among others are very important, especially via the use of emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR) / Virtual Reality (VR) and more. There have been many Ed Tech companies in India like BYJUs, ELSA Speak and more who are at the forefront of this by engaging with both youth and adults in Tier 1 cities and beyond to empower and uplift them to have jobs and move away from ones which may soon become obsolete.”
