A court ruled that students enrolled in a foreign curriculum, for example, IGCSE (British Curriculum) can no longer avail state sponsorship when joining a local university.
This was the ruling after Mr. Rakesh argued in court after his son was denied scholarship after undertaking the British curriculum and not the 8-4-4 system that is valid for the state sponsorship. He argued that this was in violation of Article 27 of the constitution.
The court in response suggested that Mr. Rakesh’s son had the right to education of his choice and application and admission to any university based on their requirements. “My humble view is that, in the circumstances of this case, the degree of difference in treatment is from what is stated hereinabove, is justified since it does not have the effect of withholding or limiting the petitioner’s access to education,” the judge said.
