Taking serious note of the increasing number of B.Ed self financing colleges that are violating norms,the Punjab and Haryana High Court has directed the National Council of Teachers Education (NCTE) to ensure that no affiliation or recognition is granted to any B.Ed college without prior permission from the court.
The directions were passed by the high court,last week,after a report on the defaulting B.Ed institutions in Haryana was placed on record by the NCTE. On due consideration of the affidavit,the high court granted the NCTE time to examine the reports of inquiry in respect to 390 institutions and after analysing the same,reach a conclusion as to whether any of the said institutions require to be de-affiliated.
The order further reads that the result of such an exercise should be placed before the court on the next date of hearing. In the meantime,we direct the NCTE not to grant any further affiliation or recognition to any B.Ed college without the leave of the court. The case has been adjourned for four weeks.
The NCTE had submitted in court that it has prepared teams to tighten the noose on the B.Ed self financing institutions and colleges,which are not complying with norms. In an affidavit filed by Dr Ram Kishore,Regional Director,National Council of Teachers Education (NCTE),Jaipur,it has been submitted that 44 visiting teams have been constituted by the NCTE to inspect institutions against whom complaints have been received. The teams have been assigned the task of visiting 434 institutions and they have already submitted reports with regard to 390 institutions.
Stating that the teams are under the process of completing the reports on all the institutions,the NCTE had sought two months time to complete the process. On February 13, the last date of hearing,the high court had ordered the NCTE to initiate de-affiliation proceedings against defaulting private B.Ed self financing institutions or colleges which are not complying with the norms laid down by NCTE.
The affidavit also reads that 15 such institutions have been identified by the NCTE.
