thanks dipti for the info..
however children who are studying in maharastra will have a disadvantage when compared to children of other states. This rule is of the state government and not of the respective boards. So children will loose one year and may impact because of age criteria later on for some competitive examination.
It's not only in Maharashtra. In nearly every school of Delhi and Bangalore they have the same criteria that for class 1, student should be atleast six years old. So if we calculate it comes the same age.
