Presently, close to 63% of students in India are part of government/government-aided schools, with the rest getting educated in private institutions. In only seven States — Manipur, Nagaland, Haryana, Telangana, Puducherry, Uttarakhand and Punjab — of the 34 States/U.T.s analysed, the share of private school students was higher. However, in recent years, there seems to be a slight push towards private schooling even in States which have a high share of public school students. In ten States/U.T.s — Puducherry, Telangana, Uttarakhand, Haryana, Tamil Nadu, Sikkim, Punjab, Nagaland, Delhi and Rajasthan — more than 50% of new admissions in the last two years were in private schools. Of these, Delhi, Sikkim and Tamil Nadu have a higher share of public school students currently. Moreover, in States such as Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan, which have an almost equal share of private and public school goers, over 5,000 and 500 new applications were received, respectively, for opening private-unaided schools
