The bench which took up the petition questioning the State governments’ role in zero admission into hundreds of schools across the States had appointed the lawyer Gupta as amicus curie to assist the court in the case.

Gupta filed a preliminary report after touring the States as suggested by the bench. His report disclosed that private schools were attracting students in large numbers compared to the government schools as their parents preferred English medium schools with better infrastructure.

The bench wondered why Telangana government had failed in retaining students in its schools just as Odisha successfully demonstrated.
