Refusal of student transport grant by Dutch administration
Tommaso Tulkens made this access to documents request to Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs
Dear Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs,
I am a young student at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands. In the past year, I have filed 3 requests to get a student transport card that would enable me to commute for free (Studentreisproduct). This request has been refused 3 times to me. According to the common market and EU rules, I am convinced that I am entitled to this benefit and that the Dutch government is not allowed to discriminate between Dutch Nationals and European students.
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information: the rules guaranteeing equal rights for all students in the EU regardless of their nationality; the common market rules allowing me to claim this product in the name of non discrimination within the EU.
Thank you very much!
