The National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) was established by an Act of Parliament, namely, the NCTE Act, 1993, with a mandate to achieve planned and coordinated development of teacher education and to ensure adherence to the prescribed norms and standards by the institutions permitted to offer teacher education programmes.
The NCTE has the mandate to monitor the functioning of the Recognized Teacher Education Institutions (TEIs) on a continuous basis. It has been observed that despite several checks and balances, rules and regulations, recognised teacher education institutions have been found to be violating various NCTE Regulations and the terms and conditions under which recognition was granted to them.
In order to systematise the compilation of complete information of these institutions it has been decided to seek information from all the recognised TEIs in the form of a comprehensive affidavit
Now, the TEIs which are imparting"Teacher Education Programme/s" as recognised by the NCTE are directed to fulfil all the requirements as enshrined in clause 8 (12) of the NCTE Regulations, 2014 and to furnish an affidavit on Rs.100/- stamp paper in the prescribed format available at www.ncte-inda.org. duly signed by the Chairman/President/Secretary of the duly constituted Management of the Institution in the case of Self Finance Institutions and Principal/HOD/Registrar in the case of Govt.
