Every time we send a doubt relating to the competition. We can also interact with them personally through their business WhatsApp account, which makes the process even quicker and easier. This Competition has improved our learning process and our design skills. Usually, in colleges we get an entire semester to design a project, however designing a project in a shorter span is always a challenge. Hence, to create a large scale design project has sharpened our skills in designing quicker..
