The Saurashtra University Act, 1965 (Gujarat Act 39 of 1965) was amended by the Gujarat Secondary Education (Amendment) Act, 1978, (Gujarat Act No. 32 of 1978) which was published after receipt of the assent of the President in the "Gujarat Government Gazette" on the 29th September, 1978. It provided that in Section 43 clause (i) after the words "Secondary School Certificate Examination" the words "in the eleventh standard or the Higher Secondary School Certificate Examination" shall be inserted. The Explanation there to clearly amplifies that the "Higher Secondary School Certificate Examination" means the examination of the students in the twelfth standard. The first appellant having passed the eleventh standard examination was thus qualified for consideration of membership of the Stock Exchange.
