Last year, it made waves by raising $100 million from Westbridge Capital and GSV Ventures at a valuation of $1.1 billion. In this way the company became a unicorn. Physics Wala achieved a profit of Rs 97.8 crore in FY 2022, which was several times more than the profit of Rs 6.93 crore in FY 2021.
According to a report, at present Physicswala has more than 12 thousand staff. The people who are set to be laid off are said to be associated with content, operations and other departments. It is not clear on which salary structure the layoffs are being done. Layoffs in 'edtech' companies are not a new thing.
