Student denied admission as his SSC is not from the state

A student, who cleared his SSC exams in Gujarat and HSC from Maharashtra, has approached the Bombay High Court after his online application form for admission to an engineering course was not accepted.
Justice Anoop Mohta and Justice V L Achliya observed, “Why should there be an insistence on passing SSC from Maharashtra. It is unjust to hold it against a student just because his education was from some other state.” The court, while adjourning the hearing on the petition to Wednesday, has directed the government to clarify its stand on the rules.
The 17-year-old student has scored 96% in the SSC exams given in Gujarat and 94.3% in HSC in Maharashtra. Advocate M Vashi appearing for the student said, “The student was born in Mumbai and cleared his HSC exams in Maharashtra. This compulsion for a SSC certificate from the state board is unfair.”
The petition filed by the student requests for directions to the authorities to allow him to participate in the admissions process that closes on June 18.
