Hi @Nikhil Gajghate​, The error message you encountered indicates that you are attempting to reference the SparkContext object from a broadcast variable, action, or transformation in your code running on worker nodes. However, the SparkContext object can only be used on the driver node and is not accessible within code executed on worker nodes.
