"Can somebody explaining why is like that?"

If you will apply for a subsequent Student visa, say, the brand new Subclass 500, then a little but important part of the requirements is:

(b) the applicant intends to comply with any conditions subject to which the visa is granted, having regard to:
(i) the applicant’s record of compliance with any condition of a visa previously held by the applicant (if any)
I you apply for Subclass 187 Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme, then there is no such requirement.
You may ask the lawmaker, why. I guess that he does not have a clue.

"He admits that he has been working all the two years over 30 hours a week on average and DOIC didn't asked him anything about it and his Visa was granted and he is now permanent resident."

Well, as I said, there is no need to ask, because there is no such requirement for the Subclass 187. He might have breached the conditions of the student visa, but if he got away with it while on the student visa, then he does not have to worry about it any more. He satisfied the requirements of the PR visa, so he got it.

If you will work more than 20 h/w, then you will have very good reason to worry, because you are still on the student visa and you have to obey the conditions attached to that visa. Students used to think that this whole migration system is just and equitable. No, it is not.
