Quizbee helps job aspirants in Madhya Pradesh, to upgrade their skills digitally through their unique GBL Technique


Bhopal, April 27, 2022: According to the economic survey report of 2020-21, Madhya Pradesh state has been able to generate employment for over 30 lakh job seekers, and therefore on the completion of the fourth term in two years, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has recently announced that the state government shall soon generate one lakh more employment opportunities for the youth. The CM further mentioned that the passing percentages have been further lowered to 50 percent and to qualify for a government job, the candidate must possess knowledge in all segments of General Knowledge and Current Affairs.


Seizing the opportunity Quizbee, an online-based educational gaming application has come forward to help potential job seekers to enhance their knowledge skills through an interactive fun-based digital module.

Mr. Abhinav Anand, CTO of Intelligence Game Pvt. Ltd said ‘The pandemic has had a significant impact on employment and has intensified family financial difficulties. The impact on some youth was made worse by the fact that they were the sole earning members and had to give up their goals of becoming a government officer or working in the police department. The youth are the country's future, and it would be an accomplishment for Quizbee if we could help them financially as well as academically. We provide a platform that allows friends, family, and students to play and learn together in a friendly, inclusive environment.
