The amendment seeks to grant retrospective recognition to the Central/State/Union Territory funded Institutions/Universities which were found conducting Teacher Education Courses without NCTE recognition till the academic year 2017-2018.
This retrospective recognition is being given only as a onetime measure so not to jeopardize the future of students who have either passed out or are enrolled in these institutions. The amendment will ensure that students studying in these Institutions/Universities, or already passed out from here, find employment as teacher. It is with this objective in mind, Department of School Education and Literacy, Ministry of Human Resource Development has brought about this amendment.
All institutions running Teacher Education Courses such as B.Ed. and D.El.Ed. have to obtain recognition from the National Council for Teacher Education under section 14 of the NCTE Act. Further, the courses being taught at all such recognised Institutions/Universities have to be permitted under section 15, of the NCTE Act.
