Super 30 tax free in Delhi, Anand to hold classes
New Delhi: Hrithik Roshan-starrer Super30 was made tax free in Delhi recently as Patna-based Super30 programme founder Anand Kumar agreed to conduct one class every month for Class 11 and 12 students in government-run schools in the city.
Super30 – based on the life of Anand Kumar – is also tax free in Gujarat, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia made the announcement shortly after Anand Kumar visited the Shaheed Hemu Kalani Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya in Lajpat Nagar in south Delhi and interacted with the students. Anand Kumar runs the Super30 programme for IIT-JEE aspirants from poor families.
He selects 30 meritorious students from among economically backward sections of society and helps them to prepare for admission in the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT).
"His work and personality are (an) inspiration for all (the) teachers across the country, as children from humble backgrounds achieve their IIT-JEE dreams. This is what it truly means to be a 'guru'," Sisodia tweeted.
Sisodia said Anand Kumar had agreed to conduct one class every month for Delhi overnment school students. "This will be an online, virtual classroom for Class 11, 12 students of our schools."
