Though National Council for Teacher Education permitted engineering graduates for BEd courses last year, an amendment to this effect was made on Aug 24 2017.

N Narayana, president of United Teachers Federation, said that since teaching would be their Plan B or C, passion teaching profession requires could be missing in these candidates. “Since their first ambition will be to become an engineer, one can’t expect a positive impact on quality of teaching,” he said.
