As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, it has affected many sectors including the education sector. So, Ncell has come up with Ncell’s Special offer to Students under HISSAN. This will help students and teachers cope with this situation. Since going to colleges is not an option during these difficult times, most colleges have opted to conduct online classes.
