The Takshila Software for examination is ideal software to process examination related activities for UG, PG, Super Specialty courses, etc. The software is totally parameterized and some of the key features are given below.

The first version of the examination software was developed and implemented during 1991.

During the last twelve years, seamless development is being made to the software by the R&D department of the company based on the ground realities and also on the invaluable feedback provided by all users.

During this period, the software has been successfully implemented at Gulbarga University - Gulbarga, Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences - Karnataka, Kuvempu University – Shimoga, University of Mysore, North-Eastern Hill University – Shillong and Karnatak University – Dharwad.

During this period, the Universities have declared more than 5,000 results with the help of this software comprising of Under Graduation, Post Graduation and Super Specialty courses.

The software can be implemented with either Windows or Novell network.

Though the software design is extremely complicated, at the same time, it is highly user friendly, easy to operate / maintain and does not compromise in its reliability and ruggedness.

The software is totally parameterized and as such can be implemented for any university with minimum changes.

The software can be implemented within the least time. It hardly takes 30 minutes to 60 minutes to setup the software for a course / regulation and make it operational.

With a minimum of one hour of basic training, the end-operators can start using the system.

The confidence of the users will be very quickly gained as the system provides a large number of validations at the appropriate stages. The validations are also user friendly, which is unique by itself. These validations not only prevent invalid data creeping into the system, but also inform and guide the user when troubleshooting becomes inevitable.
