Under Super 30 program, Mr. Kumar selects 30 talented and meritorious students from economically weaker section of the society in order to train them for competitive exams like IIT JEE. Every year approximately every candidate from Super 30 gets selected to pursue their education in IITs who might not be able to do without proper coaching classes. Super 30 provides coaching to these students who are not able to pay for higher coaching institutes.

In this recent achievement, Mr. Anand stated that, “It is good that Kunal has got this opportunity. International exposure in a technologically advanced nation like Japan will help him a lot.” Anand Kumar is happy with his students who find themselves in a good position after completing their course from Super 30 as he himself declined the offer made by Cambridge University in his youth due to financial problem.
