As the formal classroom-based learning was stopped in the month of March’20, the Company had operating challenges in this quarter which also adversely affected the overall earnings and enrollment cycles. However, the company adapted quickly to the challenges and managed the learning needs of its students effectively through its wide-ranging digital assets through hybrid blended learning models. The company embarked on various concerted efforts of business continuity planning with key focus on safety / wellbeing, strengthening virtual / digital learning ecosystem, supporting our partners, connecting with our consumers and cost optimization.”

Commenting upon the financial performance, Mr. Rakesh Agarwal, CFO, Zee Learn Limited said “Despite of the closure of the educational institutes due to lock down imposed by the Government, we are happy that the company has posted profits due to cost reduction measures undertaken by the company for the Q1 FY21 and optimum utilization of resources.”
