What is wrong in educational gap? Yeah if there is larger gaps without any reason then its okay but what is wrong if someone prefers to pursue post graduation after sometimes of graduation or what is wrong is someone wants to pursue graduation after having work experience. In some other countries like USA not all people pursue graduation soon after high school. Since in their culture people move out at 18 or 20, they first focus on getting job and saving money and then later decide to upgrade their qualification by going to university.
But in India some employers seems to be narrow minded when it comes to gaps in education. After all what is wrong in that?
> Suppose someone has genuine reason for not pursuing graduation soon after high school, poor financial condition or whatever reason and that individual decide to take up a job to support family and then later decide to go for graduation or he/she saves money later to pursue graduation. So what is wrong in that?
> And sometimes soon after graduation a person may not have plan to pursue post graduation or don't get admission in same year or don't have money for fees or whatever and so they decide later (i.e. after more than one-two year/s of graduation) to upgrade their qualification by pursuing post graduation, then what is wrong in that?
> There are many people who go for diploma after 10th (SSC) and so that they can get into early employment or just for their interest, then later after some years of gap and/or work experience they decide to upgrade their qualification and pursue graduation - so what is wrong in that?
> Now Indian culture is becoming modern day by day. Like western countries, some Indian parents don't believe in financially supporting children once they turn 18. And normally most people finish high school by the age of 18. Now such individuals may move out of parents house so naturally their main focus would be to get a job to earn their livelihood and then later they may decide to go for graduation and later after some work experience or few years after graduation they may decide for post graduation - so what is wrong in that?
> Many people nowadays join BPO jobs after passing high school and later pursue graduation - so what is wrong in that?
Why some companies in India don't hire the employees with educational gaps (even though they have good work experience and are talented). And some companies mention in their job openings advertisement that "People with education gap need not apply"

It's purely a question of supply and demand. If there are large numbers of fresh graduates to choose from, there is no need for them to take older people at a higher salary scale. People who do their courses after working expect higher salaries; also they are more difficult to adjust with freshers.
However, as you seem to have observed, it is only some companies that advertise that way and not all.
I am rather surprised to note your following observation "Like western countries, some Indian parents don't believe in financially supporting children once they turn 18". Even in the west, most Indian/Asian families support their children financially through their degree courses and even beyond. May be people like me who migrated to the West 40+ years ago are still not changed.
