The apex court bench headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi allowed the publication of photos of the Governor, chief minister and ministers of departments concerned while modifying their earlier order by which the court had permitted photos of President, Prime Minister and Chief Justice of India only in the government ads.

The centre and the states of Assam, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka had moved the court seeking the review of its earlier order, contending that it was contrary to the federal structure of the country.
