HPCL collaborates with Indian Army to implement 3rd batch of ‘Kashmir Super 30’ – education
Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL) has collaborated with the Indian Army to implement the third batch of an ambitious project: “Kashmir Super 30 (Medical)”.
The concept behind the show was to choose the brightest minds through a selection process from the underprivileged society that exemplifies courage and determination and gradually elevates them through this process toward prosperity.
The gestation period of the project is a 12-month residential training program, which prepares applicants for the National Income Eligibility Test (NEET), under the control and general guidance of the Rashtriya Rifles of Sector 10 of the Army of India, Srinagar.
The Kashmir Super 30 project started in the year 2017-18. Since then, 68 students, in the first two batches, have been part of this project.
It is a source of great pride that the 35 students in the first group passed NEET and were admitted to medical and related courses. The second group of 33 students have also performed very well and are in the process of receiving admissions counseling this year.
The first online memorandum of understanding signing ceremony for the Kashmir Super-30 (medical) project was held on October 17, 2020 between HPCL Human Resources Director Pushp Joshi and the General Officer in charge of the 15 Corps, Lieutenant General BS Raju, Ati Vishisht Seva Medal (AVSM), Yudh Seva Medal (YSM) in the presence of other senior officials from the Indian Army and HPCL.
This partnership is another step towards supporting the ambitions of the Kashmiri youth and this initiative will go a long way towards building Sadhbhavna with the Awaam of Kashmir.
