'age limit for admission to llb'

This is to seek your opinion on the news item 'Age limit for admission to LLB' that appeared in the Times Of India (Mumbai edition) dated 3rd Feb 2017. So my query is- How can one set an age limit -for anyone- in the field of education? Isn't 'Right to Educate' oneself at anytime of life, the fundamental right of every citizen? What has age to do with seeking knowledge? It should be entirely left to the seeker. Why and how the Government can go against a citizen's fundamental right.? What does the Constitution say? I find this ruling absolutely absurd and ridiculous. Am I wrong? I will highly appreciate if you can enlighten me in this regard. Kind regards,

Supreme Court granted stay against the order of BCI. Pl read newspaper dated 3/3/2017 or 4/3/2017


Interim stay granted by Hon SC.

Anyway  sUPREMECOURT GRANTED STAY AGAINST BCI  RULING. yOU ARE RIGHT. RIGHT TO EDUCATION IS  a fundamental right and forms part of Right to life and  Personal Liberty under Article 21 of the Indin Constitution. Anyone who enjoys robust health and has interest in any subject should be allowed to pursue eduction.Art. 14 also of our Constitution.. harps on this point.By providing eqal right to education  to one and all uneqals can be  made eqal.There should not be age  limit to acquire knowledge through formal education .It boosts  confidence and happiness to the pursuer.Knowledgen is power and it makes you zealous , vigorous.and a vibrant personality.

Robust health - how do you define that? You mean mental faculty?

Ms.Usha Kapoor (CEO)     05 March 2017

Robust health means overall physical and mental Health in abundence.

MUMBAI: In an instance of triumph of will over circumstances, Raushan Jawwad, the fiesty 24-year-old from Jogeshwari who lost both her legs to a train accident in 2008 and later moved the Bombay high court to study medicine, managed to get the prefix of "doctor" attached to her name on Tuesday evening.

Jawwad Shaikh, her vegetable vendor father, and mother Ansary Khatoon, a homemaker, had tears in eyes when they saw people clap for their daughter while she was being conferred with the MBBS degree during the convocation ceremony.

Nine years after the accident, Raushan has become the first doctor in her family.

A bright student, she scored 92.15% in her Class X exam in 2008. A few months later, on October 16, 2008, she was pushed out of a crowded local train near Andheri station. She was on her way home after writing her college exam papers at Bandra's Anjuman-i-Islam Girls College in the train when she fell on to the tracks and lost her legs under the moving train. Hearing Raushan's screams, some commuters pulled the chain and the train was stopped. It took her a year to pull herself out of the trauma and resume her education.

"I am thankful to Allah for giving me the courage to continue my studies. I am now preparing for MD entrance. I want to start a hospital in my ancestral village in Azamgarh where many people face medical problems due to non-availability of good hospitals," Raushan told TOI on Wednesday. She has expressed willingness to work for the poor in villages near Mumbai too. Last year, Raushan secured a first class in the final-year MBBS exam at KEM Hospital.

While the law allows only people with "up to 70% handicap" to study medicine, she was found to be 88% handicapped post the accident. To continue her education, Raushan had to put up a fight. She approached the Bombay high court seeking its intervention to secure an admission. Despite qualifying for the entrance exam, the government found her "unfit" to study medicine. The then high court Chief Justice Mohit Shah directed the state to give her admission. "When she can come all the way to court, why do you think she won't be able to come to class?" asked Justice Shah.

This defies your definition of Robust health.
