New Delhi, July 16 (IANS) Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Saturday honoured Super 30 founder Anand Kumar with the prestigious Lakshmipat Singhania – IIM Lucknow National Leadership Award, at a function organised here.

The mathematician was honoured for successfully running Super 30 which has helped hundreds of students from underprivileged sections of the society to successfully chase their IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) dream since its inception in 2002.

Super 30 hunts for 30 meritorious students from among the economically backward sections of the society and shapes them for IIT.
