Anand Kumar

Four months before the release of a biopic on his life starring Hrithik Roshan, Patna-based mathematician Anand Kumar has found himself at the centre of yet another controversy. Four students of IIT Guwahati have claimed that Anand Kumar, the founder of coaching institute Super 30, is a fraud.

On September 21, the Guwahati High Court issued a notice to Kumar, the founder of the educational programme ‘Super 30’, to reply to a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by the students. Senior advocate Ashok Saraf, appearing for the four IIT students, submitted before the court that, “Because of the wrong projection given by Anand Kumar each year a large number of students from the Northeast and other parts of the country approach him with full faith and hope that Anand Kumar, who seems to be an IIT Baba, will help them in qualifying the IIT entrance exam.”

“But after reaching there, Anand Kumar makes the students take admission in his coaching institute, namely Ramanujam School of Mathematics, by charging Rs 33,000 per student in the name of teaching them,” Saraf said.

“Upon inquiry by the four IIT-G students it was revealed that after 2008, Anand Kumar is not running any so-called ‘Super 30’ classes. Whenever IIT entrance exam results are announced, Kumar appears before the media with some students of the Ramanujam School of Mathematics and other students claiming that they are Super 30 students and have qualified in the IIT entrance exam,” Goyal said
Several former students in the past also claimed that Kumar took a cut from other coaching centres as he passed on students to other institutes
