The District Collector,

XYZ District

Subject: Redressal required of violation of my Rights to Equality for admission

in a college.

Respected Sir,

I want to inform you that my admission for pursuing the MBA course at the XYZ college has been denied because the clerk of the office said, ''You, the son of a sweeper, nobody has ever done this course in your community''. This statement of the clerk is unjust and also violates by Right to Equality. I am fully qualified to apply for this course as I have already completed it by graduation. It is my humble request to you to look into this matter and discuss it with the authorities of the concerned college to accept my application for the course.

I shall be highly obliged to you.

Thank you

Yours sincerely

Manoj
