Profile of National Council for Teacher Education NCTEINTRODUCTION
The National Council for Teacher Education, in its previous status since 1973, was an advisory body for the Central and State Governments on all matters pertaining to teacher education, with its Secretariat in the Department of Teacher Education of the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT). Despite its commendable work in the academic fields, it could not perform essential regulatory functions, to ensure maintenance of standards in teacher education and preventing proliferation of substandard teacher education institutions. The National Policy on Education (NPE), 1986 and the Programme of Action thereunder, envisaged a National Council for Teacher Education with statutory status and necessary resources as a first step for overhauling the system of teacher education. The National Council for Teacher Education as a statutory body came into existence in pursuance of the National Council for Teacher Education Act, 1993 (No. 73 of 1993) on the 17th August,1995.
The main objective of the NCTE is to achieve planned and coordinated development of the teacher education system throughout the country, the regulation and proper maintenance of Norms and Standards in the teacher education system and for matters connected therewith. The mandate given to the NCTE is very broad and covers the whole gamut of teacher education programmes including research and training of persons for equipping them to teach at pre-primary, primary, secondary and senior secondary stages in schools, and non-formal education, part-time education, adult education and distance (correspondence) education courses.
NCTE has its headquarder at New Delhi and four Regional Committees at Banglore, Bhopal, Bhubaneshwar and Jaipur to look after its statutory responsibilities. In order to enable the NCTE to perform the assigned functions including planned and co-ordinated development and initiating innovations in teacher education, the NCTE in Delhi as well as its four Reginal Committees have administrative and academic wings to deal respectively with finance, establishment and legal matters and with research, policy planning, monitoring, curriculum, innovations, co-ordination, library and documentation, inservice programmes. The NCTE Headquarters is headed by the Chairperson, while each Regional Committee is headed by a Regional Director.

Supreme Court directions to NCTENew Delhi,The Supreme Court today asked the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) not to grant recognition to private colleges offering B.Ed courses if they failed to fulfil the mandatory requirements under the law.
"In future no colleges should be granted recognition without fulfilling the mandatory conditions in accordance with the NCTE Act, 1993," a bench comprising Justices G S Singhvi and A K Ganguly said.
The NCTE is a regulator body for teacher education system in the country.
The court, which was hearing the issue related to the derecognition of some colleges offering B.Ed course in Madhya Pradesh, asked the Member Secretary, NCTE, to file an affidavit regarding the compliance of the Act of NCTE and the regulation framed subsequently.
The court also directed the counsel for Madhya Pradesh to place before it entire list of private and affiliated colleges of seven universities in the state offering the B.Ed course from the academic session 2005-06 to 2008-09.
It said that in this regard, the counsel will have to consult the Secretary, Higher Education of the State, who in turn will get in touch with the Vice Chancellors of the universities.
Further, the counsel for Barkatullah University, Bhopal, will also furnish the list of colleges affiliated to it for offering the B.Ed course.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=31554
The bench said the counsel for colleges will file written submissions and make available documents relating to affiliation within three days.
The apex court was anguished that some colleges were allegedly offering B.Ed courses in Madhya Pradesh in breach of the NCTE Act.
The bench was hearing the appeals filed by the colleges and students against the decision of the Madhya Pradesh High Court cancelling the recognition of some of the colleges.
The colleges are seeking directions to seven universities in the state to declare the results of students who were provisionally admitted by them during the academic year 2007-08.

Ms. Alka Chatrath, Advocates for the petitioners.

ASHUTOSH MOHUNTA, J. (Oral)
This judgment shall dispose of C.W.P. Nos. 15959, 15208, 16212, 17297, 15575, 15554, 15640, 17528, 15462, 14923, 14926, 19509, 20148, 20300, 20729, 18219, 18565, 18738, 18919, 18938, 19632, 19935, 19669, 19671, 15229, 16012, 15924, 16026, 16388, 16508, 17162, 16316, 16835, 17337, 17193, 18823, 19393, 19353, 19347, 17380, 19809 and 20795of 2006 as well as C.W.P. Nos. 59, 367 and 906 of 2007 as similar question of law and fact arises in all these cases. For the sake of
convenience, we have taken the facts from C.W.P. No. 15959 of 2006.
The petitioners have prayed for quashing the impugned order dated 4.9.2006 vide which the Director Elementary Education, Haryana, has intimated to the District Elementary Education Officers in the State on the basis of information gathered from the National Council of Teachers Education, New Delhi (hereinafter referred to as `NCTE') that Elementary Teachers Training (ETT) Diploma from JandK is not recognized by NCTE.
Hence, it is not equivalent to two years D.Ed. Course of Haryana
State. The petitioners have also prayed that directions be issued to the respondents to consider the candidature of the petitioners for selection and appointment against the posts of JBT Teachers which were advertised vide advertisement dated 20.7.2006.
The Department of Education sent a requisition to the Haryana Staff Selection Commission for filling various posts including 3483 posts of JBT Teachers and in pursuance to the requisition the Haryana Staff Selection Commission issued advertisement on 20.7.2006 inviting applications for the aforementioned posts.
The essential qualification for the post of JBT Teacher was as under:-
i) Graduate with English as one of the optional/elective subject.
ii) Passed Two Year JBT Course or D.Ed. Training Course from
the Haryana Education Department or its equivalent recognized by the Haryana Government with special training in child psychology and behaviour of child upto the age of 12 years.
iii) Candidates who have already done JBT/D.Ed. on the basis
of 10+2 minimum educational qualification are also eligible to apply.
iv) Knowledge of Hindi upto Matric standard.
The petitioners who had the requisite qualification as they had
passed their 10+2 examination and had also undergone two years diploma in ETT from the Jammu and Kashmir State Board of School Education applied for the posts of JBT Teachers.
However, their applications for the posts of JBT Teachers were not considered in view of the letter dated 4.9.2006 which has been impugned in these writ petitions.
It has been submitted by the counsel for the petitioners that the
JandK State Board of School Education has been established by the JandK School Education Act,1975 and as such the JandK State Board of School Education is the creation of the State Legislature. Learned counsel have argued that as per instructions issued by the Haryana Government on 18.3.1975, the relevant extract of which is reproduced hereunder:-
i) Those degrees or diplomas etc. which are recognized by
Government of India, those shall be deemed to be recognized
by Government of Haryana also.
ii)Those degrees and diplomas etc. which have been awarded
by recognized Universities and by the Boards established by State Govt. of High/Higher Secondary, those will be recognized ipso fact.
the degrees or diplomas which are recognized by the Government of India shall be deemed to be recognized by the Government of Haryana also.
Learned counsel have also relied upon instructions dated 2.11.1999 which have been annexed as Annexure P-6 issued by the Government of Haryana by which degrees/diplomas/certificates examinations which are recognized by the Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, Maharishi Dayanand University, Rohtak, Guru Jambheshwar University, Hisar, Haryana Agriculture University, Hisar, N.D.R.I. Karnal, Board of School Education, Haryana, Bhiwani, State Board of Technical
Education, Haryana, have been recognized in the State of Haryana for admission and recruitment purposes. The instructions dated 2.11.1999 are reproduced as under:-
i) that the degrees/diplomas/certificates examinations recognized by the Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, Maharishi Dayanand University, Rohtak, Guru Jambheshwar University, Hisar, Haryana Agriculture University, Hisar, N.D.R.I. Karnal, Board of School Education, Haryana, Bhiwani, State Board of Technical Education, Haryana would stand recognized in the State of Haryana for admission and recruitment purposes.
ii) The Teacher Training courses recognized by the National
Council for Teacher Education (NCTE), New Delhi would also
stand recognized in the State of Haryana for the purposes.
Iii) All examinations of Foreign Universities/ Boards/Examinations Bodies, which have been recognized, by Association of Indian Universities and the University Grants Commission (UGC), New Delhi be recognized.
iv) The Medical qualifications of all the statutory institutes/universities recognized by the Medical Council of
India be recognized. The LL.B degree of statutory institutes/universities recognized by Bar Council of India be
recognized. The Diploma in Pharmacy course conducted by Board of Technical Education and Universities in India recognized by Pharmacy Council of India be recognized.
Technical degrees/diplomas recognized by All India Council for Technical Education would also be recognized, if the examination is conducted by the approved university/Board.
v) While imparting recognition/equivalence to any examination in the State of Haryana for the purposes of admissions/recruitment, the opinion of the State Universities, School Education Board or the Technical Education Board, as the case may be would be sought.
Learned counsel have also argued that Shri Vikas Kadiyan, one
of the candidates, had addressed a letter to the Ministry of Human Resource Development seeking information as to whether the diploma of JandK State Board of School Education is recognized for the purposes of employment and higher education. In response to this letter, the Director of Secondary
Education in the Ministry of Human Resource Development had informed as follows:-
It is stated that the certificate and diploma issued by the JandK
Board of School Education, Jammu/Sri Nagar is valid and as the said Board is a recognized/approved Board of the Government of India for conducting examinations at school levels and the certificates/marks-sheets issued by them are also valid for job in Govt. offices/Departments. The Certificate/ Mark-sheets submitted by you, are therefore, valid documents for appointment to any post in Govt. offices/Deptts.
The learned counsel have also referred to Annexure P-14 which
is a list of Boards of School Education recognized by the Council of Boards of School Education in India and at item No.13 the JandK State Board of School Education, Srinagar, has duly been mentioned.
Counsel for the petitioners have relied on the judgment in Manoj Kumar and others v. State of Haryana and others reported as 2007 (1) SCT 612 wherein it has been held that as per instructions issued by the respondent-State Government on 18.3.1975 all those degrees and diplomas which have been awarded by the recognized Universities and by the Boards established by the State Government for High/Higher Secondary,
were ipso facto recognized. It has also been provided that those degrees and diplomas which are recognized by the Government of India are deemed to be recognized by the Government of Haryana also.
Counsel for the petitioners have also relied on the judgmentC.
Annexure P7 passed in C.W.P. No. 212 of 2004 (Sandeep and others v. State of Haryana and others) in which a Division Bench of this Court has held that the degrees/diplomas/certificates which are recognized by the
Government of India shall be deemed to be recognized by the Government of Haryana also as per the letter dated 18.3.1975.
Counsel for the petitioners have also argued that their applications have been rejected vide Annexure P-9 on the ground that ETT Diploma from JandK State Board of School Education is not recognized by the NCTE whereas according to the learned counsel this Act is not applicable to the State of JandK.
Counsel for the petitioners have also contended that the curriculum of the two years Diploma in ETT from JandK State Board of School Education is absolutely the same as the curriculum of ETT Course conducted in the State of Haryana.
On the basis of the above, counsel for the petitioners have argued that the de-recognition of the diplomas issued by the JandK State Board of School Education would be violative of the instructions dated 18.3.1975 as well as the instructions dated 2.11.1999. A written statement has been filed on behalf of respondent Nos. 1 and 2 in C.W.P. No. 15208 of 2006 (Subhash Chander and others v. The State of Haryana and others) and the counsel for the State submits that this reply is being adopted by the respondents in all the other writ petitions.
It has been averred in the written statement that vide Annexure P-9 it has been decided not to recognize the two year Diploma in ETT from JandK State Board of School Education as equivalent to two year D.Ed. Course of Haryana State. It has also been averred that the Diploma in ETT from JandK State Board of School Education is not recognized by the NCTE, New Delhi. Hence, the petitioners are not eligible for the posts of JBT Teachers.
It is further the case of the respondents that the JandK State Board of School Education is not available on the website and, hence, the Diploma acquired by the petitioners from the JandK State Board of School Education cannot be held to be equivalent to two years D.Ed. Course of the Haryana State.
We have heard the learned counsel for the petitioners as well as
the respondents at length.
A perusal of instructions dated 18.3.1975 issued by the Haryana Government clearly shows that degrees/diplomas which are recognized by the Government of India shall be recognized by the Government of Haryana also. In the present case, the Department of Secondary and Higher Education under the Ministry of Human Resource Development of Government of India has duly recognized and approved diplomas issued by the JandK State Board of School Education for the purposes of higher education for conducting examination at school levels and also valid for jobs in Government offices/Departments. Further, as per
the aforementioned instructions the diplomas which have been awarded by the recognized Universities and by Boards established by the State Governments would also be recognized ipso facto.
Apart from the above, a perusal of the instructions dated 2.11.1999 also shows that degrees/diplomas/certificates examinations which are recognized by the Board of School Education, Haryana, would be recognized in the State of Haryana for admission and recruitment purposes.
It is not in dispute that the diplomas/certificates awarded by the JandK State Board of School Education are recognized by the Haryana School Education Board and, therefore, the letter dated 2.11.1999 also supports the case of the petitioners.
In the present case, the JandK State Board of School Education
is a creation of the legislature and thereafter the JandK School Education Act,1975 has come into force. Thus, on both these counts the two year Diploma in ETT from JandK State Board of School Education acquired by the petitioners has to be considered to be valid for the purposes of employment.
The argument of the learned State counsel that only those
Certificates/Courses are accepted by the Haryana State which are from an institution approved by the Haryana Government cannot be accepted as it would amount to keeping out all eligible candidates merely because they have obtained their qualification from a University or Institution outside the State of Haryana.
The argument of the counsel for the State that ETT Diploma
from JandK State Board of School Education is not recognized by NCTE also has no force as a perusal of Section 1(2) of the National Council for Teacher Education Act,1993 itself shows that it extends to the whole of India except the State of Jammu andKashmir. Thus, the rejection of the applications of the petitioners on the ground that it is not recognized by NCTE is wholly against the provisions of the Act itself which is not applicable to the State of JandK and also shows non-application of mind by the respondents.
Apart from the above, the JandK State Board of School Education have clearly indicated in their letter-Annexure P2 that the examinations set by their Board are recognized by all the School Boards and Secondary School Boards in the country including Haryana Board of School Education etc. It has also been averred that the ETT Course is broadly based on the curriculum framework proposed by the NCTE.
A perusal of the above letter-Annexure P2, thus, shows that the
two years ETT Course was duly recognized by the Haryana Board of School Education and the curriculum was the same as adopted by NCTE. The respondents have not denied the averments made in the writ petition regarding the assertion made by the petitioners in this respect in their written statement.
A perusal of the judgment-Annexure P7 also shows that the
degrees/ diplomas and certificates recognized by the Government of India would also be deemed to be recognized in the State of Haryana as per letter dated 18.3.1975 for the purposes of admission and employment/recruitment.
In view of the above, we quash Annexure P-9 dated 4.9.2006 and allow the writ petitions and hold that the two years diploma in
Elementary Teachers Training acquired by the petitioners from the JandK State Board of School Education is valid and shall be recognized in the State of Haryana for the purposes of admission as well as recruitment. As all the petitioners had been allowed to be provisionally interviewed, therefore, now their results shall be declared. The respondents shall be at liberty to scrutinize the eligibility of all the candidates subject to the candidates satisfying the other eligibility conditions as contemplated in the advertisement dated 20.7.2006.
Some of the petitioners in these bunch of writ petitions are working as Guest Faculty Teachers and as their services were sought to be terminated, they obtained stay from this Court that their services be not terminated on the ground that they had passed the diploma from JandK State Board of School Education.
The petitioners pray that their services be not terminated now in view of order-Annexure P-9 having been quashed and as they have been found eligible for the said post.
In this regard, it is made clear that such Guest Faculty Teachers
would be allowed to continue till the regularly selected persons are appointed in pursuance to advertisement dated 20.7.2006.

In view of the aforesaid fact, the prayer made in the

The main case is taken up for hearing today itself.
CM No.17758 of 2006 Prayer made in the application is allowed.
Documents Annexures P.12 and P.13 are taken on
The petitioner Society has approached this Court for the issuance of directions to the respondent University to consider and grant affiliation to the College run by the petitioner Society for B.Ed course for the session 2006-07.
The aforesaid claim has been made by the petitioner
Society, on the basis of a recognition granted by National Council for Teacher Education on August 27, 2006 (Annexure P.3). The petitioner Society has averred that NCTE had granted the aforesaid conditional recognition to the petitioner Society subject to appointment of staff by a duly constituted Selection Committee with the requisite qualification as per norms and standards of NCTE and affiliating University.
Shri Aman Chaudhary, the learned counsel appearing for the petitioner Society has informed the Court that vide a subsequent communication dated September 29,2006, NCTE had granted conditional permission to the College to conduct B.Ed course of one year duration with effect from the session 2006-07 with an annual intake capacity of 100 students subject to appointment of staff as per regulations and ratification by the University. Shri Chaudhary has also relied upon the communication dated October 23, 2006
(Annexure P.12) issued by the Kurukshetra University whereby qualifications/appointment of the teaching staff recruited by the petitioner Society has been ratified by the University. Shri Chaudhary has also drawn our pointed attention to the constitution of Selection Committee (Annexure P.13) and has contended that the aforesaid Selection Committee comprised of representatives of Kurukshetra University also.
Shri Balram K. Gupta, the learned senior counsel
appearing for the respondent University does not dispute the aforesaid facts. The factum of granting recognition by NCTE to the petitioner Society is even conceded by Shri Vinod S. Bhardwaj, the learned counsel appearing for respondent No.3.
As a matter of fact, Shri Gupta has very fairly conceded that in view of ratification (Annexure P.12) by the University with regard to the teaching faculty recruited by the petitioner Society, the petitioner Society is duly eligible for the grant of provisional affiliation and the University shall have no objection if the College is directed to be granted a provisional affiliation because of the recognition granted by NCTE.
In view of the fair stand taken by the respondents, we
dispose of the present petition with a direction to the respondent No.2 Kurukshetra University to grant a provisional affiliation to the College run by the petitioner Society in terms of the recognition granted by NCTE for running B.Ed course of one year duration with effect from the session 2006-07 with an annual intake capacity of 100 students.
The present petition is disposed of accordingly.
A copy of the order be given dasti on payment of usual charges.

This order shall dispose of Nine Writ Petitions bearing C.W.P. Nos.17964 of 2005 18620 of 2005 18659 of 2005 18805 of 2005 19517 of 2005 18918 of 2005 2977 of 2007 2697 of 2007 and 20696 of 2006 as the common question of law arises in all of them.
The question of law is whether these institutions have a right to affiliation after grant of recognition by the National Council for Teacher Education.
The facts are being taken from CWP No.17964 of 2005. As per the National Council for Teacher Education Act 1993 every institution
offering or intending to offer course of training in a Teacher Education or where recognised institution intends to start any new course it can only do so after the recognition by the National Council for Teacher Education. The Government of Haryana has already granted N.O.C to petitioner No.2 i.e. Manav Rachna Education Society (Regd.) for starting a B.Ed. College with an intake of 100 students and petitioner No.1 i.e. Bhawani Shanker Anangpuria Charitable Trust (Regd.) with an intake of 200 students. The National Council for Teacher Education i.e. respondent No.4 had decided to dispense with the requirement of No Objection Certificate from State/U.T. Government for a period of three years for those institutions already running B.Ed. programmes recognised by NCTE. On 28.05.2004 the NCTE granted recognition to the petitioners for starting the B.Ed. Course. Provisional affiliation was granted to the petitioners respectively on 30.06.2004 and 05.07.2004. Subsequently both the petitioners decided to start two years Junior Basic Teacher Course (JBT/D.Ed.) at their respective institutions. After inspecting both the institutions of the petitioners respondent No.4 i.e. National Council for Teacher Education granted its recognition to B.S. Anangpuria Institute of Education and the Manav Rachna Education Society for starting J.B.T/D.Ed. Course of two years' duration w.e.f. 28.06.2005.
Thereafter the petitioners vide separate communications requested respondent No.2 i.e. Haryana State Council of Education Research and Training Sohna Road Gurgaon that affiliation be accorded for starting the JBT/D.Ed. Course letters were also written to the Director Secondary Education Haryana and the reminders were also sent.
Legal notices were also served upon them. Having received no response the writ petition was filed.
Vide interim order dated 22.11.2005 direction was issued to the respondents to provisionally consider the petitioners' institutes as
recognised institutes duly affiliated to the Haryana State Council of
Education Research and Training so as to be included in the process of
counselling. The matter was thereafter admitted vide order dated
16.05.2006. Meanwhile some more Civil Writ Petition bearing Nos.9270 9348 9626 9899 9951 and 10253 of 2007 were filed by various other similarly situated institutions which were disposed of on 07.08.2007. The facts and question of law as in the present nine cases is identical to that of the writ petitions disposed of vide order dated 07.08.2007 (bearing CWP Nos.9270 9348 9626 9899 9951 and 10253 of 2007).
Learned counsel for the respondents-State has not disputed this fact.
Accordingly these writ petitions being identical to CWP No.9270 of 2007 are allowed in the same terms and respondent No.2- Haryana State Council of Education Research and Training is directed to grant affiliation to the petitioners forthwith and provisional admission granted to the students in pursuance of the interim order shall stand
regularised. No order as to costs.
Bhoj Open Universitys proposal for more D.Ed seats rejectedBhopal: In what could be seen as a major set back for the Bhoj Open University, the National Teachers Education Council (NTEC) has rejected the universitys proposal to increase Diploma in Education (D.Ed) seats.
The rejection means that the university will not be able to open distant education centres across Madhya Pradesh.
The Bhoj university had sent a proposal to add five thousand more seats in D.Ed course, however, the NTEC rejected the proposal citing government laid rules and allowed only 500 additional seats.
State Education Department head Dr. RS Pandey, on behalf of the Bhoj university, had tabled the proposal before the NTEC.
Pandey, while referring to the number of D.Ed seats (2,500 in 36 districts) in neighbouring Chhattisgarh, requested the NTEC that as per the states population, Madhya Pradesh should have at least 5000 more seats.
However, the NTEC rejected the proposal, saying that according to the new regulations of the council it can not give permission to run an institute with more than 500 D. Ed seats under the distant education scheme.
It further added that Bhoj Open University has already been allowed to invite admission forms for the permissible number of seats under the correspondence course system.
130 B Ed colleges fail to get NCTE recognitionTHE NUMBER of seats available to the B Ed aspirants in the State has gone down by almost half this session with as many as 130 private B Ed Colleges failing to get recognition from the National Council for Teachers Education for the academic session 2006-07. These 130 colleges could not fulfill the norms of the NCTE within the scheduled timeframe.
There are about 27565 seats available with the 275 private B Ed Colleges in the State. But the fact that 130 of these could not get recognition, the seats are reduced to almost half.The NCTE finalised the list of colleges that have been recognised for the session on Wednesday. NCTE Western Regional Committee chairman Vishnu Rajoriya told that only 145 colleges could fulfill the norms of the NCTE till the scheduled date. Initial reports available with this newspaper suggested that only 52 colleges had failed to get the recognition for the session.
Rajoriya mentioned that the final recognition list has been sent out to the State Council for Education Research and Training (SCERT), and even if the other colleges manage to fulfill the norms in near future, they could not be given recognition for this particular session. He cautioned the students against seeking admission to the non-recognised colleges.
The admission process for the private B Ed colleges to be conducted for first time this year by the MP Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE) also commenced on Wednesday. The prospectus cum rule book for the admission process released by the board gives a list of all the 275 private colleges in the State, suggesting that the candidates list out 10-15 colleges of the their choice while filling in the application forms. Now with almost half the colleges failing to get the recognition, the students would be in a dilemma.
The de-recognition of the colleges for this particular session also cut down the number of seats. There were a total of 27565 seats available with the 275 colleges. Now only about half of the seats would remain available. Also the fact that 25 per cent of the seats in all colleges have been reserved for students from outside the State would further reduce the opportunities for students.
