The actual load of the course varies from person to person- but by average should not take more than 5 hours/week. It is a 2 month incubation program starting on the 2nd of July, and you will have 3.5 months to complete it (with assigments, tests etc). Every week has 1 module and it is self-paced, you can do it according to the time that suits you.

The actual cost of the incubator (Self-Paced + numerous live master classes + numerous live talks by global experts) is more than 25,000 INR (300 US$). This pricing is calculated from other Ed-tech platforms as well as Govt. Platforms (National skill deveolpment initiative) that charge fees (check it yourself on google).
The cost of the accelerator is more than 40,000 - 80,000 INR (600-1000US$) - Large part of that is the time of the mentor. Thanks to the Mentors and Experts who volunteer for free with us, the program is made possible for everyone.
The program is subsidized 1) By experts who "donate" their time and provide world-class coaching for free or very low rates. The world is filled by extremely talented mentors who want to do good. 2) VigyanShaala is a non-profit, and there are no shares/stocks or business valuation, so no one can pocket profits.
The lectures and content are created by experts many of whom including the core of team of VigyanShaala come from Top 0.1% global universities. We live world-class quality everyday and internalize quality day-in day-out.
There are 2 Live sessions every week (MasterClass and Inpsiraitonal speakers) of which at-least 1 session every week must be attended live. We have numerous live sessions happening paralleley, attendance of which are as per our choice. For the live sessions we recommend listening to the MasterClasses and Inpsirational speakers live. Talk to the speakers, ask doubts, questions etc.
