NCTE REGULATIONS,2009 ( For B.Ed Course )
NCTE REGULATIONS,2009 ( FOR M.Ed Course )
PROBLEM
 As per NCTE Regulations, 2014 most of the Teacher’s Training
Institution of West Bengal will be able to teach only one basic unit of 50
students for the coming academic session 2015-16 (for B.Ed).
 In that case, the total number of pass out student teachers will be
approximately 50 % of the previous academic session. Besides in the
academic session 2016-17 no trained teachers will come out as because
the regular B.Ed course will be of two years duration.
 As per RTE Act, 2009 after 31.03.2015 it is not possible to recruit any
untrained teachers in the upper primary and secondary schools of West
Bengal. So a huge gap will be created between the demand and supply
of the human resources in respect to recruitment of teachers in Schools
of West Bengal.
Proposed Action:
So to cope up with the situation, Higher Education Deptt.
may intimate to the NCTE Authority that we will like to start
the regular B.Ed & M.Ed course for 2 years from the coming
academic session i.e. from 2015-16 following NCTE
Regulations, 2014 with revised Curriculum and evaluation
pattern.
Higher Education Deptt. may take initiative to form a
uniform curriculum for B.Ed/ M.Ed, B.P.Ed / M.P.Ed courses
in the light of NCTE Regulations, 2014 . Two committees
(one for B.Ed & M.Ed curriculum and another for B.P.Ed &
M.P.Ed curriculum) may be formed for the said purposes.
Proposed Action:
 We may also request the Chairperson, NCTE [vide item
No.12 (power to relax) of NCTE (Recognition Norms
and Procedure) Regulations, 2014 published in The
Gazette of India: Extraordinary, Part –III, Sec-4, dated
01.12.2014] to allow B.Ed Colleges to admit 100
students in 1st year with existing teaching faculty (1+7)
and existing infrastructure for the coming Academic
Session (2015-16).
Issue
The
existing
Teacher
Education
Institutions,
wherever
necessary as per the revised Norms and Standards, shall
provide additional built up area, create additional
infrastructure, appoint additional staff and furnish
additional Reserve Fund per unit per programme by
October 31, 2015.
However, if the institution is not willing to fulfill the norms
prescribed in the New Regulations as mentioned above, its
recognition will automatically become invalid as the old
Regulations have already been superceded.
EXPLANATION
 Additional built up area: For an additional intake of 50 students, it
shall possess additional land of 500 sqm. (five hundred square metre). For
the Institution established prior to this regulation, for an additional intake
of 100 students, built up area to be increased by 500 sqm. (five hundred
square metre) and the requirement of additional land may not apply to
them.
 Additional infrastructure: Along with the previous infrastructure (As
prescribed in NCTE Regulations, 2009) one Curriculum Laboratory and one
additional male common room need to be constructed along with female
common room.
 Appoint Additional staff: 8 more full time faculty members need to be
appointed [16(1+15) for 100 students (2 basic units of 50 students)].
Regarding Administrative and professional Support staff, post of Lab
Assistant need to be created and filled accordingly.
EXPLANATION
 Additional Reserve Fund: If an existing recognized institution has not
maintained the Endowment Fund and Reserve Fund for all the courses it
is running; it shall be required to do so at the new rates (Endowment Fund
Rs.5.00 lakh Rupees / programme /unit & Reserve Fund Rs. 7.00 Lakh
Rupees / programme /unit) in respect of the programme for which it has
not maintained the two funds.
In respect of the existing programme(s), if Endowment Fund and
Reserve Fund have already been maintained, the Institutions shall not be
required to deposit the balance with the Bank in the form of a FDR.
 If an Institution is running two programmes and it has FDRs for Rs.8.00
lakhs, it shall be required to obtain FDRs for Rs.12.00 lakhs for the second
programme.
PROPOSED ACTION
 The Self-financing Institutions may be requested to
take the necessary initiative to meet up the above
criterion regarding additional built up area,
additional infrastructure, additional staff and
additional Reserve Fund per unit per programme.
 In case of the Government and Government –aided
Institutions, State Government may take initiative for
additional built up area and additional
infrastructure.
But to appoint additional staff in Govt. and Govt.-aided
college there are several steps need to be followed subject
to approval from the Higher Authority:
 Collection
of necessary information regarding existing staff
pattern, vacancy list and new posts to be created for satisfying
the NCTE regulations, 2014 from different Teachers’ Training
Colleges of West Bengal.
 Determination of financial liability of the State Government
for creation of these new posts.
 Necessary ratification for change of the nomenclature of the
existing posts.
 Creation
of the new teaching and non-teaching
posts on the basis of approval from the Higher
Authority.
 Framing of the recruitment rules as per new
regulations after necessary clarification from NCTE
and UGC.
 Necessary
advertisement by different Service
Commissions like Public Service Commission,
College Service Commission etc. for undertaking
Selection process & Filling up of the posts.

We need at least 12 to 18 months time to complete the
process. Besides both for the Government and Govt.-aided
Colleges,
State
Government
already
formulated
the
recruitment rules following the then NCTE & UGC regulations
and the process is ongoing for recruitment of teaching
faculties including the Principals.

So Higher Education Department may seek permission from
the NCTE Authority to recruit the academic faculties following
the already published recruitment rules till January 2016, so
that in between we can take necessary steps for recruitment
of the staff following NCTE Regulations, 2014 after necessary
clarification.
EXEMPTION OF ENDOWMENT FUND
In the NCTE Regulations, 2014 there is no mention of
exemptions regarding deposition of Endowment Fund and
Reserve Fund for Govt. and Govt.-aided Institution as enjoyed
by them at present.
Under the existing system similar provision for exemption of
Endowment Fund and Reserve Fund may be made for Govt.
and Govt.-aided Institution by NCTE with the intervention of
Higher Education Department, Govt. of West Bengal.
Important Issue
 Each Teachers’ Training Institution is instructed by the
NCTE Authority to take the necessary action to comply with
the NCTE (Recognition Norms and Procedure) Regulations,
2014 [vide Gazette Notification ,Gazette of India:
Extraordinary, Part –III, Sec-4 New Delhi, dated
01.12.2014] and to submit the affidavit in the prescribed
format within 21 days from the date of receipt of the letter
from the NCTE Authority. NCTE will issue order of
recognition w.e.f. 2015-16 after submission of the
affidavit.
All the bodies are requested to extend their co-operation to
the State Govt. to complete this gigantic task of Teacher
Training following NCTE Regulations,2014 in West Bengal
within the stipulated time.
Let us plan for the Success and
act accordingly….
