Mathematician Anand Kumar who is famous for Patna’s Super 30 coaching for IIT-JEE preparation seems to have landed into controversy. His own students have blamed him for exaggerating the numbers and lying about the success of the institution just for popularity. The former students charged him of deceit saying that only three students had made it to the IIT-JEE but Anand Kumar had claimed 26 students out of 30 cleared the exam.
Super 30 coaching was started in 2002 with an aim to provide free mentoring to IIT aspirant coming from the economic class of society. Later 2004 the institution came into limelight and by 2008 the coaching institute had made Anand Kumar a hero by giving 100% result. All 30 students of the batch had qualified the IIT exam and this had made it to the Times Magazine.
This time again with its claim of success by making its 26 students out of 30 to the IIT colleges, the institute garnered praises and applaud. Actor Hrithik Roshan whose movie Super 30 is realising soon on box office had also congratulated and admired Anand Kumar over the news.
The controversy doesn’t end here. It is claimed that among those three aspirants who made it to the prestigious IIT-JEE exams only one student turned out to belong to the ‘Super 30’ group. According to a report in India Today, the three successful candidates were Onorjeet Goswami, Suraj Kumar, and Suryakant. To which, a former student has claimed that only Onorjeet happened to be the student of Super 30. The other two students were enrolled in other coaching institutes. Despite studying in Kota, Rajasthan, Suraj Kumar was named as a successful candidate of Super 30.
According to the former student’s claim, Anand Kumar also asked the IIT aspirants to get admissions in another coaching institute called Ramanuj classes. Based on their performances only the students from Ramanuj coaching centre will be selected for Super 30.
