Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today met all the 30 successful IIT-JEE candidates from the prestigious coaching institute Super -30 at his residence and advised them to become responsible citizens in addition to their professional achievements.

On being informed by the Super-30 founder Anand Kumar that all of them hailed from poor families, the Chief Minister appreciated the efforts of the coaching institute for its dedication to cater to the educational aspiration of the poor students.

Kumar told the students to take advantage of the provision in chief minister's discretionary fund for sanction of educational loans to those from poor families whose income is less than Rs one lakh per annum.

Besides, the state government provides a grant of Rs 50,000 to specific IITs for each student from Bihar, he said.

Kumar, himself an engineer by profession, also recounted his interest in education, particularly mathematics during the interaction with the students.
