Rules, 1987, issued vide G.O.first
read above, permission for establishmentof any educational institution or for
opening additional sections in any existingeducational institutions shall be

1982 are satisfied andprior
approval of the Competent Authority is obtained. Further, no permission shall

competition crepts between theother institutions of same class/category in the
area. Further, no section/group/courseshall be opened without the minimum

without prior permission of the Competent Authority.
Duringthe year 1999, Private Junior College Managements Association,
Hyderabad has filed WP NO:13927/99 before the Hon’ble High Court of Andhra
Pradesh contending that the Board ofIntermediate Education are not insisting on
adherence to the rules in respect of a fewcolleges while granting permission for
opening of new Private Junior.Colleges oradditional sections or shifting of
Colleges from one place to another, for variousreasons. The petitioners prayed the HighCourt to
give a direction declaring that the respondents will not be justified in
grantingadditional sections to any of the colleges in the State without keeping
in mind the rulesissued in G.O.Ms.No:29, Edn.Dept., dated 5.2.1987. After
hearing the parties, the HonbleHigh court in its order dated 27.12.99 in the
WP.No:13927/99 directed the respondents,
i.e., the Government of Andhra Pradesh and theBoard of Intermediate
Education, that they should come up with a scheme with regard to thegrant of
permission to the Junior Colleges proposed to be established during the
nextacademic year/or the additional sections that have to be granted with
reference to thepasses in the SSC examination and the need for either permitting
establishment of newcolleges or opening of additional sections. Itis further made clear that by doing
any of those two things, the existing colleges thatare being run by the
Government, local bodies and the colleges admitted to thegrant-in-aid should not
be affected in any way in their
funcitioning. In other words, the
students strengthe in thesecolleges should not be depleted by opening new
colleges or new sections.

various levels, Governmenthave worked out a scheme of proposals keeping in view
