The Andhra Pradesh High Court Ordered the Andhra Pradesh Government to file Affidavits in regards with the case after the Lawyers of the Petitioners vis-a-vis farmers of Andhra Pradesh, have submitted the aforementioned file notes.

The Andhra Pradesh Government on November 22, 2021 had withdrawn the much-debated Andhra Pradesh Decentralization and Inclusive Development of All Regions Bill, 2020. The Andhra Pradesh Government had stated that it has withdrawn the proposed Bill due to technical faults in it.

The Bill suggested on making three capitals in the State. The capitals being Vishakhapatnam as executive, Amravati as Legislative and Kurnool as Judicial capital respectively. The State Government however, clarified while withdrawing the Bill, that it will propose a new bill after rectifying the mistakes made in the earlier one.
