RSS first Super 10 Student batch is ready for JEE and NEET

Forget Anand Kumar’s “Super 30” show. An RSS-supported institution educated the inaugural class of 10 financially poor but deserving students in Lucknow. It will be able to take the JEE or NEET exams to gain admission to IITs and other institutions.

Mahamana Shikshan Sansthan

Mahamana Shikshan Sansthan - Super 10 Student batch is ready for JEE and NEET

The Mahamana Shikshan Sansthan is part of the Sangh’s Bhaurao Devras Seva Nyas. It was established in Arjunganj (Lucknow) in 2019. It is managed by BHU graduates and other top medical and technical schools in the country.

RSS sources indicate that children are chosen from all over the state after they have been physically screened and verified their financial status through house visits.

Plans are in place to induct children who have been orphaned by the Corona pandemic. This follows the Yogi Adityanath government’s offer of Rs 4000 financial assistance to children who have lost both their parents in the Uttar Pradesh floods. 

The campus of the three-story institute is 34,000 sq. feet in size and includes 20 rooms as well as a large hall on its main floor. Students who have attained at least 80% in class 10 are eligible for admission. Although the idea was originally created for students from all over India, it is primarily focused on poorer regions. Poorvanchal and Bundelkhand are two examples of socially poor areas in UP.

After more than ten year in private life, Tewari decided to leave the corporate world and join the coaching institute as a major faculty member. “We are hoping for strong results when the first batch of students takes the admission tests in the coming days,” he said.

Vidya Bharti School

Applications are being accepted through July 30, and the admissions process has started for the 3rd year. The college hopes to host at least 25 students.

Conclusion

A Lucknow-based RSS backed institution has already enrolled the first batch of 10 meritorious students to be tutored by it. They are now ready for JEE and NEET.
