JAIPUR: 13th July 2012, Jaipur: Vedanta through its foundation has launched India’s first Medical SUPER 30 centre in Jaipur. The programme is also India’s first SUPER 30 all-girl centre, which aims to provide specialized coaching to talented students from underprivileged
families who aspire to pursue MBBS.
In addition, the first batch of the Vedanta SUPER 30 centre for IIT aspirants from Rajasthan was also inaugurated. The engineering coaching programme is open to both boys and girls. Both programmes will provide 10-month free residential coaching to the 60 students.
The students, who come from all parts of Rajasthan, are mostly children of marginal farmers or daily-wage earners. They were selected to the course through a written exam and interview process that saw 900 applicants in total.
Speaking about the launch of the Jaipur centre, Shri Abhayanand, DGP Bihar Police & Founder of SUPER 30 Concept said, “The idea behind SUPER 30 was to help the talented underprivileged students to keep them in a group for about a year and guide them how to crack the toughest entrance test.
The highest level of talent also does not flower on its own and needs support thus this initiative is a boon for those who can’t afford private coaching and at the same time need personal attention of the tutors. It makes me happy that
Vedanta is expanding the concept of Super 30 in Rajasthan.”
Mr. Ravi Krishnan, CEO Vedanta Foundation said, “Our holistic approach towards education aims at nurturing talent. Vedanta’s SUPER 30 centres will enable underprivileged students fulfill their dreams of securing admission to engineering or MBBS studies in India’s premier institutes. We are proud to launch India’s first Medical SUPER 30 and also the first all women SUPER 30 centre.”
