Vision Digital India under the umbrella of Imperial Group has launched a course that aims to bring digital education to 1 lakh students in the upcoming 4-5 years. This course will equip the youth with digital and analytical skills, which are much sought-after by the corporate sector.
Many bright young minds today do not get to live their dreams of making
it big in the corporate world, simply because there exists an immense divide
between the education that has been imparted to them and industry requirements.
The core problem is that the industry is upgrading itself at such a breakneck
speed that most educational institutions cannot keep up. That is why the
courses they offer are becoming dated and obsolete, and students armed with
such degrees find themselves to be inadequately trained to make the cut in a
“This is what Vision Digital India had in mind when it created a course
that is precisely tailored to meet the demands of the corporate world, and
ensure that students are industry-ready. Through its endeavour, Vision Digital
India is trying to make PM Narendra Modi’s flagship campaign Digital India a
resounding success and it is succinctly summed up in their motto ‘Enable
Digital’,” said Dr Hari Krishna Maram, Chairman, Vision Digital India, on
asking about this endeavour.
To turn aspirations into reality, Vision Digital India has incorporated
niche technology into its course-structure to make it industry-relevant.
Employers don’t just look into a candidate’s scorecard but what truly works in
a student’s favour is how quickly he/she can be inducted into the workforce.
And, this calls students for acquiring a better understanding of new and advanced
technological concepts like data science, cloud and analytics, forming the
backbone of an industry.
What sets the course apart is the fact that Vision Digital India is
bringing to the table top-notch education at extremely affordable prices. What
adds to its USP is that it has joined hands with the likes of Google, IBM, and
Amazon, to rope in their technical know-how. For example, the analytics
certificate comes from IBM and Google certifies the Digital Marketing course.
Moreover, Vision Digital India has secured the help of industry
professionals who know the real world, how it works, latest updates and
requirements, and what employers expect from employees. Who is better to
instruct and train students than those men and women who have been working in
the corporate world?
But, how does it go about it? Vision Digital India approaches colleges
to implement its course. As per university regulations, the duration of the
course is set at 80 hours. The bulk of it, around 60% is dedicated to hands-on
training and the remaining 40% is all about theories.
“To cap it all, this course teaches students a novel way to compose their resume. They are encouraged to craft their dream CV and then they are inspired to strive to achieve it. Moreover, they are given useful insights into the nuances of the corporate interview procedure and tips to ace such interviews. Once the course is successfully concluded, students are awarded a certificate during a convocation ceremony along with a LinkedIn badge”, adds Dr Hari Krishna Maram.
The founder Chairman Dr Hari Krishna Maram has also received the Most
Prestigious International Icon Award 2019 at Indo-Thai Economic Forum Gala
Event, Bangkok through Vision Digital India, providing Digital skills and
creating employment opportunities to the youth.
It is a win-win scenario for all the players, including students, Vision Digital India and participating colleges. Students interact with trainers one-on-one and get ample opportunities to clear their doubts. Colleges benefit because this course expands campus placement and attendance too shoots up. And, it is cost-effective for Vision Digital India because they utilize the computer laboratories of the host college.
With the focus of Vision Digital India being on niche technology, job orientation, and campus placement, the course enhances desirability and employability, and that is why students stand to benefit from it.
Digpu News Network Ties Up With Hindustan Times Media To Highlight Indian Start-ups To Global Audiences
New Delhi, India, August 14, 2019 —
With eight unicorns and 7000+ start-ups,
India’s start-up sector has announced itself to the world. The year 2018 saw a
108% growth in funding in Indian start-ups as per an industry report published
by NASSCOM. 2019 continues to prove to be a promising year for start-ups in
India with newer ideas, younger entrepreneurs, and a pro-business environment
created through various Government schemes and incentives.
While the sector holds promise and
potential for both the economy and consumers, various challenges continue to
stall progress, especially at the inception stage. Start-ups in ‘futuristic’
sectors such Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality are akin to immediate
attention and investment which may not be the case for a start-up with an
unconventional idea for a banking solution, given that banking is viewed as a conventional
sector. Entrepreneurs focus on a mix of innovative ideas, agile techniques, and
raw talent to find their feet in a highly crowded, often fragmented and
seriously competitive scenario which means that any form of support that
highlights the uniqueness of each idea is welcome.
There would be no points for guessing that the much-needed catalyst for Indian start-ups is to get more access to global support, whether through funding, mentoring, or networking at the right forums. To plug this gap, Digpu News Network has joined hands with HT Digital Streams Ltd. with the sole aim of highlighting innovative ideas and efforts by Indian start-ups that can help them grow through a series of stories on promising Indian start-ups.
Speaking on the exclusive partnership, Kunwar Devender Singh, Director, Digpu News Network said, “Mainstream media’s efforts to highlight the story of start-ups is nothing short of exemplary. Time and again, we come across remarkable and hair-raising experiences of young, budding entrepreneurs who brought their radical ideas to life through hard work and passion. These stories only prove the abundance of talent in our country, and we at Digpu, are proud to associate with HT Digital Streams Ltd. to highlight this talent on a global scale.”
“Start-ups are the silver lining of any economy, and more often than not, we’ve seen how their ideas can disrupt an entire sector. Be it their achievements or need for mentoring, we aim to give shape to their dreams through a platform such as Digpu, where change-makers across the globe take heed of their stories,” added Prabhakar Singh, Chief Revenue Officer and Dilpreet Kaur Banerjee, Deputy General Manager, Digital Sales, HT Digital Streams Ltd.
Start-up founders and investors from different cultures and backgrounds across the globe feel an instant connect given their shared sense of understanding and experience of starting up. At most start-up networking events, we often overhear the need for a platform or forum where every start-up, irrespective of size or stature or geography, gets to represent its ideas to a diverse audience. Taking inspiration from the famous saying by Victor Hugo that “nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come,” we see a similar thought behind the Digpu-HT Digital Streams Ltd. partnership, which acknowledges that the time has come for Indian start-ups to take centre stage globally.
CA Test Series, incepted in 2015 with digital test series for subjective
papers, has launched an AI-powered revision algorithm – IRevision. IRevision
has revolutionized Edutech with its hybrid approach to combining advanced
technology with human efforts. CA Test Series has helped more than 80,000 CA
students over the years.
In recent times, various sportspersons and international players like
athletes have improved their game by working on technology for practice and
performance optimization. It is due to the Machine Learning based software that
interprets even the minutest details of the whole process.
CA Test Series has introduced the same concept in Education. For the first
time in CA preparation, aspirants can make use of various AI and Machine
Learning based algorithms for revision. These algorithms in IRevision will
record the student’s performance based on individual chapters and subjects for
which he/she takes for revision test.
IRevision identifies the subject/chapter wise performance of the student in
relation to the highest- scorer of respective subject/chapter in the current
year and the past years. It also provides feedback to the student which
comprises the following:
The chapters which need more emphasis than others
The difficulty level of each chapter revision text in relation to the past years’ final exams of C.A.
The average score of the student for the specific chapter and the weightage of that chapter in the final exam
The revision time required to improve the performance at par to the highest-scorer in the CA test series
A comparative analysis of the previous and latest revision tests – showing the level of improvements, if any, since last revision.
The relative performance of the student in relation to the highest-scorer
The relative performance of the student in relation to the previous year’s highest-scorer:
The subjects that the highest scorers have emphasized on
The memory system tells the student when to revise a particular topic again.
All these factors are automatically calculated by Machine Learning Software.
These help the student to prepare a precise and clear strategy for preparation
of the exam.
“This AI algorithm took several months to be designed and developed. The
system is based on a unique concept which suggests the student when to revise,
which topic to revise, how much practice is required, and when to revise the
same again based on your memory. It is just like an expert trainer providing dedicated
guidance to a student for 12 hours according to their learning pace and memory
retention”, said Mr Mayur Singla, Spokesperson, CA Test Series on being asked
IRevision (www.catestseries.org) consists of a vast set of Machine Learning algorithms working in tandem to process the data. The experienced programmers have been working tirelessly for improving the system. It is aided by the knowledge collected from various universities, study patterns and the process undertaken by these universities for preparation for the exam. We have worked hard on identifying scientific ways for enhancing memory power.
As per Mr Singla, “The mantra to success is to understand your ability and use them strategically, For an exam which is already dreaded everywhere, IRevision helps the aspirants to understand their learning pace and problem areas respectively. It guides them on the specific chapter and subject to be revised until clarity is achieved on the subject matter.”

The first underground 160MVA pump transformer in the world with an exclusive 400/13.8/11 KV sub-station
Consists of the world’s largest surge pools to ensure uninterrupted pumping
Megha Engineering and Infrastructures Limited (MEIL) has made yet another glorious achievement in the Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project (KLIP). MEIL successfully commenced operations in the world’s largest Laxmipur Underground Pumping Station (LUPS – the Package 8). The pump house has been named after the goddess Gayatri, successfully completed the wet run executed by switching on the 5th machine in LUPS on the night of 11th August. With this, around 3000 cusecs of water rose to over 111 meters and flew into Mid-Manair through the gravity canal. Telangana CM Mr K. Chandrashekar Rao is expected to inaugurate the Pumping Station on 14th August.
MEIL has successfully changed the direction of Godavari River from downstream to the upstream stretch of the water contrary to the natural flow of water. The Pranahitha – Godavari river water will flow back to reach the LUPS from Medigadda via Annaram and Sundilla. A landmark in the global lift irrigation sector, the Laxmipur Underground Pumping Station Gayatri of Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project has been completed in just 3 years. The KLIP has yet another engineering marvel in its name, the world’s largest underground pumping station, constructed 470 feet below the Earth’s surface. The LUPS would enable storage in several reservoirs through the year in the river belt.
“KLIP is the world’s most innovative mega project in the industry. There is an underground pumphouse, 470 ft below the ground with twin tunnels and the largest surge pools in the world. This is an ultra-mega project in the world, having 7 motors, each having a capacity of 139 MW. These motors can lift 3 TMC of water per day. This accomplishment is ‘Make In India’ as the Motors are Indian-made and are based on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technology. All the electrical infrastructure has been constructed with 3057 MWs capacity, comprising of six 400KV and 220KV substations, transformers and 260 km of transmission lines, 7 KMs of 400 Kv XLPE under Ground Cable. Other key features include the twin tunnels of length 4133 mt and diameter 10 mt, world’s biggest surge pools and the extraordinary size of the Pump House.” said Mr B Srinivas Reddy, Director, MEIL, speaking about the array of achievements.
Lift Irrigation projects are usually constructed at ground level. However,
This LUPS has been built underground with a pumping capacity of 2 TMCs of water
per day. 21.6 Lakh CuM of soil has been excavated from 470 ft below Earth’s
surface for lifting an enormous amount of underground water by pumps and
motors. A 160 KVA capacity pump transformer has been set up to run the motors
with 139MW of power.
The project consists of four surge pools for storage ensuring uninterrupted water pumping. Further, the turbine pumps have been erected at a depth of 138 mt under the ground. Each motor pump weighs around 2,376 metric tonnes, which gives them the name ‘Mega Motors’.
Megha Engineering Infrastructure Limited (MEIL) with 30 years of its rich
technical expertise in such complex and high-end electro-mechanical works has
been executing this project as a mission with an objective to deliver water to
the farmlands in time and quench the thirst of Telangana.
“We feel honoured to be part of Telangana’s dream project and the world’s biggest lift irrigation project, the KLIP. It has been a privilege and a lifetime opportunity to execute with world-class technology by coordinating with the world’s best engineering suppliers and realizing the dreams of Telangana. CM Mr K Chandrashekar Rao’s supervision and determination pushed our team to complete the project in time”, said Mr Reddy, on being asked about the record-setting pumping station.
