G20 THINQ - The Indian Navy Quiz

In honor of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, the Indian Navy has elevated the Inter School Quiz competitions held at different locations to a National Level School Quiz Competition known as “The Indian Navy Quiz (THINQ).” This year, as India assumes the Presidency of the esteemed G20, THINQ has transformed into an international event and has been renamed “G20 THINQ.” The Navy is organizing this event under the guidance of the G20 Secretariat, in collaboration with NWWA (Navy Welfare and Wellness Association), and it will encompass two levels: National and International.

To simplify the school registration process and offer comprehensive event details, a dedicated website (www.theindiannavyquiz.in) has been created specifically for G20 THINQ. This website serves as a central hub for all information related to the event, making it convenient for schools and participants to access the necessary information.
