The Army on Monday said that it was expanding its Super-30 coaching programme for engineering aspirants of the Kashmir Valley.
The announcement was made during the facilitation ceremony organised by Army’s Dagger Division at Baramulla for the students of the Valley who attended Kashmir Super-30 engineering coaching programme in 2015-16.
An army spokesman said that 15 students of J&K out of 26 attending the Super 30 programme at Srinagar, have cracked the JEE (Mains) Exam, the results for which were declared on April 27, 2016.
“Conducted by the Dagger Division, on behalf of Chinar Corps, the Army’s Super 30 programme gives 11 months free coaching to a select group of 30 students from J&K for the Joint Entrance Exam for Engineering Courses,” the spokesman said.
Interacting with the students, Major General JS Nain, GOC Baramulla Division, lauded the perseverance and hard work put in by students and the faculty to achieve success in the national level exam.

Eleven successful candidates now are eligible for the IIT (Advance) exam in May 2016 while all fifteen can seek admissions in various engineering colleges as per their merit,” the army spokesman said.
The Super 30 students are selected based on a state wide exam conducted by the Army with its training partner Center for Social Responsibility & Leadership (CSRL). All students are afforded free lodging, boarding and educational facilities under the programme, the spokesman added.
