Saini felt the need for an online education platform when he realized the lack of infrastructure and human resources available online, that can make learning faster for millions of candidates. Although his father, an engineer, and brother, a paediatrician was not initially glad about his decision of leaving a secure government job they never complained about it.

Saini said, “There were many factors were involved, so I consulted everyone possible. I have a lot of respect for the civil services, but I think education is what will drive the nation and that is why I finally decided to work in this sector. I had dedicated two years to prepare for the civil service exams.”

The educational forum has has helped many students in times of need. One of the students, Aman Mittal who use study materials from Uanacademy.in, achieved a high 20th rank last year. After the formal launch of the online education forum in December 15, 2015, they have over 400 video lessons by 31 educators. Most of videos on their channel are for free.
