Tamil Nadu state government on 19 July 2011 filed a leave petition in the Supreme Court which challenged the Madras high court order to implement Samacheer Kalvi(uniform syllabus education system)  in schools across Tamil Nadu.


In its order on 18 July 2011, the Madras High Court struck down Section 3 of the Uniform System of School Education (Amendment Act 2010) as unconstitutional. This was passed by the State government seeking to defer the implementation of Samacheer Kalvi which was introduced by the previous Tamil Nadu government for the Academic year 2011-12.
