Khaleel Baaqavee told, "MyGov Quiz ("> is an innovative platform developed by Government of India to build a partnership between Citizens and Government with the help of technology for growth and development of India. The quizzes are uploaded on behalf of various Ministries / Departments.

The quiz aims to create awareness and to increase citizens' understanding on various government development and welfare programs, good governance and strengthen the collective towards inclusive development. The quiz also aims to sensitize the participants on various programs and initiatives and how to avail the benefits".  

He continued, "mass participation in the quiz series will deepen government engagement at the grassroots level. You have to give the correct answers to the questions in the specified time. Winners are awarded with participation certificates along with marks. Cash prizes are also awarded in some competitions. These competitions are conducted in English and Hindi. There are multiple choice questions. It is not time consuming when you have the basic knowledge of the subjects."

He said, "I am inquisitive by nature in search of knowledge, I have been participating in all kinds of competitions since my childhood. I don't participate in anything expecting gifts. I prefer being a participant rather than a spectator. Success and failure are not constant. The mere name of a contestant is enough to give us satisfaction. That is how I have been participating in these competitions conducted by the Government of India. A lot of information can be learned through this. There is an opportunity to understand some historical blackout information.

I wish all people to participate in such competitions irrespective of age. Our Tamil Nadu government should conduct such competitions and create an opportunity for the public to know about the history of Tamil ethnicity and the various welfare programs of the Tamil Nadu government".
