Pune, 26 July 2023: On this special occasion, a heartfelt birthday wishes to the visionary educator and founder of Prime Academy, Mr. Lalit Kumar. A true trailblazer in the field of education, Lalit’s remarkable journey from various Kendriya Vidyalayas to the prestigious IIT Bombay, and his subsequent dedication to guiding JEE aspirants, have left an indelible mark on the lives of thousands of students.


From the early days of his education in different Air Force stations across India, Lalit displayed exceptional talent and curiosity. Graduating from IIT Bombay’s Department of Electrical Engineering was a testament to his prodigious abilities. During his final year of B.Tech, he became one of the youngest authors for the IEEE, contributing a technical paper on Power Distribution and Automation.


At the tender age of 21, Lalit embarked on his teaching journey, sharing his profound knowledge of Mathematics and Physics with JEE aspirants. His passion for education and genuine desire to see his students succeed laid the foundation for Prime Academy, which he established in January 2009.


Over the past two decades, Lalit Kumar’s mentorship has led over 3000 students to success in the IITs, a proud list that includes Pune’s only All India Rank 1 achiever, Sushant Sachdeva. Beyond academic excellence, Lalit’s empathetic approach has nurtured a familial culture among his staff and students alike. This culture of support and camaraderie has attracted some of the best minds in JEE tutoring, including renowned physics author, Mr. DC Pandey.


The academy’s teaching team has remained unchanged for over a decade, a testament to the stability that has played a pivotal role in maintaining Prime Academy’s high success rate: approximately 80% of its students clear JEE Mains, and 30% conquer the more rigorous JEE Advanced, surpassing national averages significantly.


Beyond academic endeavors, Lalit Kumar is a stalwart believer in social responsibility. His commitment to providing discounted or even free coaching to students in need reflects his vision to eliminate financial barriers to quality education. With an unwavering dedication to ensuring that no committed student is deprived of learning opportunities due to financial constraints, Lalit continues to shape Prime Academy into an institution that champions excellence and inclusivity in education.


May his dedication, passion, and empathy continue to ignite the flames of success in the hearts of countless students, making the world a better place, one educated mind at a time.
