When someone applied for something and reasons for the application are not enough or not subject to even consideration, how do you say in English instead of unacceptable? Does this sentence make sense? : The reasons do not come under the rule. I have been searching what idiom fits in this situation for last 2 hours, but never found. Help me out please.

So essentially you're talking about when somebody applies for something, lets say a job and their skills/attributes don't:
match the specification.
fit the criterion
reach certain demands
thus they are:
unfit for the position
In regards to a business situation/job application, the employer would write:
unfortunately your application was unsuccessful at this time
I have received many of these :(
