The Army launched this initiative in 2014. It is based on the model of the Super 30 in Bihar that has attained global recognition. The Kashmir Super 30 is being run in partnership with the Centre for Social Responsibility and Leadership.
The initiative was launched in a modest manner and care was taken to select those who were from the lower strata and had the requisite academic acumen to be able to take on the challenge with necessary coaching.
Over the years, the Army has, under the ambit of Operation Sadbhavna, expanded the scope of its education initiative. What started as provision of primary education in Army Goodwill Schools has now expanded to the professional level with initiatives like the Super 30.
