What is an ECAR file?

An ECAR file is a Zip-compressed archive that contains content saved to be accessed offline in the Android version of DIKSHA, an educational app offered by the Government of India. The video, document, or other content an ECAR file contains is meant to be viewed in DIKSHA. However, users can also access an ECAR file's contents by renaming it to use the .zip extension and then opening it as they would any .ZIP archive.

More Information

DIKSHA (short for Digital Infrastructure for Knowledge Sharing) is a national platform that the Government of India provides so Indian teachers and students can access approved school curriculum materials online. The platform is built on open-source technology and available via browser-based, PC-based, and Android-based apps.

Teachers and students can download DIKSHA content for use offline. The Android version of DIKSHA saves offline-accessible content in ECAR files. Each ECAR file is a Zip-compressed archive that contains three files:

  • A manifest.json file describing the ECAR file's contents
  • A .thumb.png file that acts as the content's thumbnail
  • A .PDF, .MP4, or other file that contains educational content

How to open an ECAR file

You can access the content an ECAR file contains in DIKSHA (Android). If you want to access the content an ECAR file contains outside of DIKSHA:

  1. Rename your ECAR file to use the .zip extension.
  2. Expand the file as you would any Zip archive (using Corel WinZip, RARLAB RAR, or another Zip-decompression tool).
  3. When the decompressed version of your file appears, open that folder and find the PDF, MP4, or other content file it contains. Open that file.
