In the prevailing situation, I would say proactive and innovativeness is the need of the hour and we have proved that in this challenging time. We are engaging with our students through our digital platforms. Every student who chooses us has made a choice, and every parent who sends their ward to us for education places great trust in us. We are committed towards it.”
