The Indian Constitution was amended to add Article 21A, which declared education to be a fundamental right. The Bill's rough draft was written in 2005, and it drew a lot of criticism because of its mandated provision of a 25% reservation for disadvantaged children in private schools. In the early 1990s, gaining the right to free and compulsory education for all children in India took a dramatic turn. Previously, numerous education policies were established, but neither the policy nor the programme required that students get free and compulsory education. However, the Ramamurti Committee Report on the Review of the 1986 Education Policy, published in 1990, chastised the government for failing to pay attention to the Right to Education. In 1976, an amendment to Article 42 of the constitution was added, making education a concurrent list topic, allowing the central government to legislate it in the manner most suited to it. This paper is totally on the doctrinal research design and suggestions and conclusions are added up to give more analysis on the paper.
