Krishna Durbha, Head of VAS Sales and Marketing of Reliance Communications said, “Thrust towards education is RCOM’s contribution to take VAS beyond just entertainment. We have the reach now into millions of Indians and want to provide services critical to their daily lives. Education being the key aspiration and need for most Indians, we decided to use technology to advantage. Exam Results which were pioneered by RCOM about five years ago, revolutionized the way Indian students got access to results in their tense moments. The attempt is to provide not only exam results but also help students find the right course, seek admissions and provide all educational related information.”
