The Haryana Super-100 Programme is one of the latest examples of the success that is ensured when the indomitable spirit of doing good of our government officials meet the enterprising skills of the private sector.
The Programme, initiated by the Haryana Government in the year 2018 for meritorious students of state-run government schools to get admission in premier higher educational institutions of the country, has witnessed 23 students cracking the IIT-JEE Advance exam this year.
Implemented as a PPP model in partnership with Vikalp Foundation, the Programme provides free coaching to the selected students from the remote areas of the State. The programme is being run from two centres – Rewari and Panchkula. All the expenses of the selected students, including their living and studying expenses, are borne by the State.
The idea was conceived in the year 2018 with the visionary Directors of School and Elementary Education, Haryana School Shiksha Pariyojana Parishad, Shri Rajiv Ratan (IAS) and Shri Rajnarayan Kaushik (IAS) which led to the implementation of the ‘Special Programme Super-100’ with support from the then Additional Chief Secretary, School Education, Shri P K Das and with continued support from the present Additional Chief Secretary, Shri Mahavir Singh, IAS. The training was provided by the Vikalp Foundation, an organisation led by Shri Naveen Kumar Mishra.
Under the Haryana Super-100 Programme, Government school students who score more than 80 per cent marks in Class 10th, appear in a qualifying test and after undergoing a screening process, are given special coaching for JEE and NEET in Rewari and Panchkula.
