The National Council for Teacher Education is a Government of India body set up under National Council for Teacher Education Act, 1993 which regulates teacher training courses in India, besides its other entrusted function. The duration of B.Ed. course has been fixed two years. The candidates who have completed their graduation degrees like B.A. and B.Sc. etc. are eligible for admission in the B.Ed. course. A B.Ed. degree has been made mandatory for teaching at the secondary (classes 9 and 10) and higher secondary (10+2 or classes 11 and 12) in India. Once the norms have been fixed, the same are to be followed. There is no gain in discussing about the reasons behind the same.
