Haryana Govt has decided not to give permission of opening any new B.Ed college in the state for two years. There is the deluge of B.Ed candidates in the state, thanks to the liberal attitude of NCTE ( National Council of Teachers' Education ) for granting recognition to self-financing private B.Ed colleges. The policy of granting B.Ed affiliation was so easy in the state that as many as 490 B.Ed colleges had come up during the last few years.
Now the Haryana Govt has taken step to curb this mushrooming of these colleges of Education. A meeting chaired by Vijai Vardhan, ACS Higher Education, took place in Chandigarh on Wednesday. Besides not allowing the emergence of any new B.Ed institutes, other important decisions were also taken. Those decisions include the auditing of faculty and other things related with infrastructure of the existing B.Ed colleges in the state.

It is note-worth that Chandigarh High Court had given strict opinion at the malfunctioning and non-transparent system in the B.Ed Colleges in Haryana. This two years' ban seems to be the result of this reprimand for the Apex Court of the state.
Prof MM Goel, KUK Dean of Colleges, who had also attended the meeting informed the reporters that these Private B.Ed colleges work as shops and admit non-attending students from other states in lieu of exorbitant charges. He also said that around 28,000 B.Ed seats could be filled in B.Ed colleges in the 2015-16 session.
What causes more concern ?
These so-called B.Ed colleges afford to get the services of some eligible teachers just to hoodwink the concerned authorities. In reality the teachers with less salary are appointed and when there is the inspection, the fake category of teachers is presented. In this way, these colleges play with the career of the students by appointed unqualified staff and second flout the norms of NCTE.
Now these B.Ed colleges shall be asked to upload the details of their faculty and infrastructure on the official websites.
