OIL Super 30 and Rahmani both were launched on the pattern of 'Super 30'. Super 30 is an educational program started in Patna, Bihar under the banner of 'Ramanujan School of Mathematics', by Anand Kumar. Established in 2002, the program selects 30 meritorious and talented candidates each year from economically backward sections of society and trains them for the IIT-JEE, the entrance examination for Indian Institute of Technology.
After cracking this highly competitive test, all these students have now become eligible for admission to Indian Institute of Technology (IITs), considered as India's top notch engineering institutions.
Launched in 2010 by Syed Muhammad Wali Rahmani with the active support of Former Bihar DGP Abhyanand, Rahmani Foundation is running free coaching classes for poor students of the Muslim community. The propgram was first launched in Patna, and later extended to the cities like Mumbai and Hyderabad.
