5. Student Desk
A bunch of final year engineering students striving to do something in such a way that can be really helpful to someone and that can alter the existing practices. In case of text books, every time when any student wants to buy a book their first thought would be why not first look at library? if not, Second thought would be why shouldn’t we opt for ‘used books if there is same content in new book, and due to lack of availability of used books, we end up buying new books, making it heavy on our pocket. Readers who love to read novels and magazines, they have to pay for private library subscriptions or they have to buy new book which is very costly.
Thus, StudentDesk.in came into picture.They provide a platform for students to sell their used books online at reasonable prices rather then getting lump sum amount when they return their book to any shop, similarly a particular user can buy a book at reasonable price from some different user in his/her city/institute.
For bookworms, they provide a service by which they can exchange their books/magazines and explore their knowledge. No need to pay for every books they want StudentDesk.in provides a list of books user wants to exchange and get another book in return building a community.
