The State Institute of Advanced Studies in Teacher Education (SIASTE) in Gurugram and Kurukshetra, the government institutions, conduct BA BEd and BSc BEd courses without recognition from the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE), disclose information obtained under the RTI Act by a lawyer from Rohtak.

Later courses were approved

In the past, many courses in universities and other government institutions were introduced without accreditation, but later these courses were approved by the relevant authorities. Rishi Goyal, Director, SIASTE

Significantly, in its response, the NCTE also denied any inspection conducted by the Northern Regional Commission (NRC) of both institutions, which introduced the course last year after provisional affiliation with Gurugram and Kurukshetra Universities. Each institution has 100 seats for this four-year integrated course, while the joint course admission guidance in both institutions is scheduled for September 9 at Gurugram.

Sources said Gurugram University had also requested a copy of the NOC/NCTE approval from the principal, SIASTE, by sending three letters about it in the past nine months, but SIASTE has not yet submitted it.

Lawyer Dharmendra Jangra, the RTI applicant, has now written to the Vice Chancellors of Gurugram and Kurukshetra Universities to demand waiver of the provisional affiliation with SIASTE for teaching the course. The step has been taken to secure the future of students as the course has no legal validity as it is taught without acknowledgment from the NCTE.

He claimed that the SIASTE in Gurugram and Kurukshetra were also not on the list of NRC-recognized institutions available on the NCTE website, which was another proof that the accreditation had not been granted to these institutions to complete the course until now. to give.

“Under Sections 14 and 15 of the NCTE Act 1993, no institution can provide teacher training without accreditation from the NCTE. In addition, Article 17a of the NCTE Act also makes it clear that no institution will admit a student to a teacher training course unless the institution concerned has obtained recognition under Article 14 or permission under Article 15. But the last session was admitted to the course offered by the SIASTE in Gurugram and Kurukshetra, while preparations are being made to hold counseling for the second batch from September 9, Dharmendra claimed.

Rishi Goyal, director of SIASTE, told The Tribune that the case for obtaining recognition from the NCET for the BA BEd and BSc BEd course was pending and likely to be obtained soon.
