New Delhi, Feb 4(ANI): The Union Cabinet on Thursday approved a proposal to amend the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) Act, 1993 to clarify its applicability to matters relating to norms for minimum qualification for appointment of school teachers.

The proposal from the Human Resource Development Ministry had also called for amendment to clarify its applicability to schools and school teachers, which was also approved.

The National Council for Teacher Education Act, 1993 came into force on July 1, 1995 with an objective to achieve planned and coordinated development of teacher education system in the country and ensure proper maintenance of norms and standards in the above system.
