Smart Scholarship

Our Spandana Smart Class daily program which is viewed and followed by more than 25 thousand students from 8 districts of Karnataka, is one of our major contributions towards the field of Education. Anchored by well experienced and renowned teachers, the classes are conducted in both English and Kannada medium and are beneficial to SSLC students as well as the teachers.

We thank all these educational trusts for this splendid gesture.
