Both blue-collar and white-collar sectors are getting affected with a number of jobs getting replaced by robots and automated processes.

This made Sunil, who holds an experience of over a decade with IBM along with the two other co-founders Abhishek and Biswa, initiate Asha24 in the year 2017.

However, the instant support and total transparency of our training programme made Asha24 their first choice without much contemplation."
