The Individual Resource Development (HRD) Ministry, like a one-time measure, will regularise specific teacher education programmes that are being carried out by Central and state government establishments. While recognition will be given to applicants who qualified in academic 12 months 2017-18, unrecognised institutes or programs will no longer be allowed to run.

Legally, only those teacher education programs and colleges that are recognised with the National Council for Teacher Education and learning (NCTE) can grant teacher coaching certificates. Several state and central institutes were, however, running programmes without formal recognition from NCTE.

“It was brought to the notice of MHRD that some of the Central and State Govt institutions had inadvertently admitted students in teacher education courses which were not recognized by NCTE.  This rendered invalid the qualification acquired by these students for the purposes of employment as school teachers in India,” the HRD Ministry said in an official statement

As per the official data, over 30,000 students and in-service teachers have received certification by means of these courses. A many as 23 institutions of the central and state government have gained from the move, involving about 13,000 students and around 17,000 in-service teachers. Certificates directed at these students will be considered valid now.

HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank said that “the decision was taken in the interest of students who were likely to suffer in this.”

In a webinar with teachers, the HRD Minister said, “MHRD will respect the orders of Honourable High Court of Patna issued with respect to NIOS DLEd teachers. Honourable High Court Patna has quashed an order of NCTE, which said that in-service teachers who had done DLEd course through NIOS is not valid for regular appointment as primary school teachers.”
