Backed by the slogan ‘Come, Connect & Conquer’, the mobile pathshala will be launched by the founders of e-learning venture Padhaku Joker and The Brand Guru Info. The team unveiled their service for registration on July 14 this year.
A unique and innovative learning approach, the mobile pathshala will give a competitive edge to IIT-JEE aspirants and help avoid silly mistakes which students commit during exams.

Besides Varanasi, the mobile pathshala will also target students belonging to Kota, Kanpur and Patna, but can be accessed by anyone anywhere.
For the time being, this service is for classes 11 and 12 and students who have passed clas XII and who wants to pursue engineering. Mobile pathshala was borne out of passion to usher in change and is designed to meet the needs of students aspiring for IIT-JEE .
It will give study tips and important topics for preparation of chapters. Simultaneously, it will guide students on how to remember the details of a particular topics and motivational quotes will be there too.
The team behind this venture includes students pursuing BTech-IV year in Ceramic Engineering from IT-BHU.

Priyesh Ranjan told HT on Friday, “Students spend a lot of time using mobile phones and this venture will not only reduce time wastage but also introduce skill enhancement. Its specifically tailored information will act as a comprehensive and crust material of any matter.”
“For the last two months we have been working on it. The idea of launching this service came from our own experience and the problems we faced. For the time being, we are getting queries from students,” he added.
Another team member Yogesh Shukla said, “The most interesting thing about this mobile pathshala is that students will be made to read every alert. They can't avoid it like books. Whenever their mobile phones beep, they will be compelled to read their smses”.

“We plan to extend this sms service to students of medicine, commerce, arts and other streams too but all depends on the success of the mobile pathshala,” said Sanchit Khandelwal.
