Written by: Staff

Kolkata, Apr 19 (UNI) Eight colleges of North Bengal university have lost their BEd status, after a two-judge bench of Calcutta High Court today directed the University to cancel their affiliation.

The bench, comprising Chief Justice V S Sirpurkar and justice Ashok Kumar Ganguly, passed the order on a petition filed by social activist Ashok Bakshi, who complained that these eight colleges did not have the infrastructure nor recognition of National Council for Teacher's Education (NCTE)to conduct BEd courses.

The court also directed these colleges to pay Rs 5,000 each to the students as compensation because they would have to seek admission to other colleges.

According to the petitioner, nearly 800 students had taken admission to these colleges.

In its order, the court also held that the colleges teaching BEd courses must have the NCTE recognition.
