Following concerns raised by single mothers, Gandhi had last month written to Javadekar, urging him to change the rule that requires father's name to be mandatory mentioned on a student's degree certificate.
"I have been approached by several women who are separated from their husbands and who face problems getting degree certificates issued for their children without their father's name," Gandhi had said in her letter.
She explained further that breakdown of marriages and separation between husband and wife is now a reality and rules must reflect this.
