ARTICLES OF AN ADVOCATE: On 12.08.2005, a seven-Judge Bench of this Court delivered a judgment in P.A. Inamdar v. State of Maharashtra [(2005) 6 SCC 537] clarifying the law laid down with regard to the admission procedure and fee structure of unaided educational institutions including minority institutions in Pai Foundation [(2002) 8 SCC 481]. In para 137 of the judgment in P.A. Inamdar (supra), this Court has clarified that Pai Foundation has held that minority unaided institutions can legitimately claim unfettered fundamental right to choose the students to be allowed admission and the procedure therefor subject to it being fair, transparent and non-exploitative. This Court has further held in para 137 of the judgment in P.A. Inamdar (supra) that there may be a single institution imparting a particular type of education which is not being imparted by any other 3 institution and having its own admission procedure fulfilling the tests of being fair, transparent and non-exploitative or all the institutions imparting the same or similar professional education can join together for holding a common entrance test satisfying the triple tests of being fair, transparent and non-exploitative. This Court further observed in P.A. Inamdar that the State can also provide for a procedure of holding a common entrance test in the interest of securing fair and merit-based admissions and preventing maladministration. 3. Pursuant to the judgment of this Court in P.A. Inamdar (supra), the Government of Andhra Pradesh in exercise of its powers under Sections 3 and 15 of the Andhra Pradesh Educational Institutions (Regulation of Admission and Prohibition of Capitation Fee) Act, 1983 issued a notification dated 26.05.2006 for making rules for admission of diploma holders into professional institutions imparting under-graduate professional courses in Engineering (including Technology) and Pharmacy in the State of Andhra Pradesh (for short `the 2006 Rules').
