Educational discrimination by Private Companies

Dear Expert, Is it legal for companies to keep an educational requirement such as "Full Time BTech only" as a job criteria ?
Can this be considered as discrimination between Full time and Part time education?

The course content for full time and part time are same. The part time course durations are more than full time. Indian govt jobs are open for both. Then can private companies have such requirements?

Dear Mr Mishra, There is no illegality in the policy of the private companies. As far as human resource is concerned, the private sector is free to develop their own policies as per their desire unless it would contravene any law such as Industrial Disputes Act and other labour laws. Therefore, there is no remedy for this, even if it is actually discrimination. Regards Shubham Bhardwaj Advocate. District & Session Court, Chandigarh, Punjab & Haryana High Court, at Chandigarh.

It is company / organisational requirement, where eligibility and qualification policy can not be challenged.
