New Delhi: A bill to grant retrospective recognition to government-funded institutions and universities conducting teacher education courses without the National Council for Teacher Education Act's approval (NCTE), was introduced in Parliament on Monday. Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar introduced the bill to ammend the NCTE Act 1993.

The National Council for Teacher Education (Amendment) Act, 2017, will grant retrospective recognition to the central or state universities that are found to be conducting teacher education courses without the NCTE's permission.

The retrospective recognition will be being given as a one-time measure to ensure that the future of the students, who had passed out from the colleges or were enrolled currently, was not jeopardised.

The amendment will make students studying in these institutions or universities, or those who have passed out, eligible for employment as teachers. At present, all institutions running courses such as B.Ed and D.El.Ed, have to obtain recognition from the NCTE under Section 14 of the Act.

Further, the courses of such recognised institutions or universities have to be permitted under Section 15 of the Act.
