The NCTE (National Council for Teacher Education) has cancelled recognition of 21 BEd colleges of Uttarakhand affiliated to HNB Garhwal University Srinagar. The reason for cancellation is that  these private colleges are not up to the norms and standards prescribed by the NCTE. Actually  in 2007 -08 academic session HNB Garhwal University found  that 18 private BEd colleges did not follow the norms prescribed for admission in BEd colleges by University and decided not to conduct counselling of these colleges for the session 2008-09. But these private BEd colleges approched court against Garhwal University and on the order of court university conducted counselling for the session 2008-09 also. The Court also ordered NCTE to give the list of BEd colleges which are not following the norms and standard prescribed by NCTE . After the order of court NCTE enquired all the BEd colleges in Uttarakhand and found that 21 colleges where not upto the norms and standard. On the basis of this report court ordered NCTE to cancel the recognition theses 21 private BEd colleges. After this order the future of 2100 student is in jeopardy as each college is allotted 100 seats each. But this is yet not confirmed that this order of NCTE will be followed for the session 2008 -09 or for the session 2009-10 .
