The two-judge bench comprising Chief Justice Bhaskar Bhattacharya and Justice JB Pardiwala sought CEPT's response about discontinuing the course on 'Climate Change and Environment Sustainability'.

The PIL, filed by a CEPT alumnus Chirag Shastri, submitted that the "vital course" was discontinued without any prior information.
    
Advocate Daxesh Raval for the petitioner contended before the High Court that CPET's executive council discontinued the course overruling Dean Shravan Kumar's recommendation to continue with it.

The petition said that students pursuing the 'Climate Change and Environment Sustainability' course were transferred to another course.
    
The petitioner submitted that there are no specific courses on climate change and therefore CEPT's decision is improper.
    
The petition demanded setting aside of an order passed by the CEPT executive committee to discontinue the course on May 10 and sought the High Court's direction to the university to continue with the course. The High Court is set to hear this plea on July 17.
