Picture changed after Supreme Court’s decision
The craze for D.El.Ed has increased after the Supreme Court canceled the notification of the National Council of Teacher Education (NCTE) dated June 28, 2018 regarding the recognition of B.Ed in primary school teacher recruitment. After five years, 105 private colleges have sought affiliation of D.El.Ed. However, despite this, a large number of seats will remain vacant due to no recruitment in the last five years.
