HRD ministry to launch 3-year integrated B.Ed.

Lucknow: The Union ministry of human resource development has decided to introduce an integrated three-year B.Ed. and a two-year M.Ed. programme.

HRD minister of state Ram Shankar Katheria said that a decision in this regard was expected by the first week of January. The integrated bachelor's and master's courses, he said, would be available to students with effect from the next academic session.

"The country faces an acute shortage of teachers at the primary, secondary and high school levels. The idea of introducing an integrated programme is to enable those interested in teaching to move into the profession without having to give an extra year to be trained as teachers," he said. Under the new system, a student would be able to opt for the three-year B.Ed. programme after class XII. Currently, a one year B.Ed. programme can only be pursued after graduation.

The Centre has already proposed a change to the existing B.Ed. programme increasing its duration from one year to two years before this. To implement this, the government has asked for a declaration of guidelines for the two-year programme. Katheria, himself a professor of Hindi at Agra University, also expressed concern over the poor conditions prevailing in central and state-run universities in Uttar Pradesh.

"In a central university like the one in Allahabad, there is no VC. Basic infrastructure like proper sanitation and hostel facilities are lacking. This needs urgent attention," he said. The minister also said he had proposed a meeting between MHRD, UP governor Ram Naik, and all vice-chancellors of the five central universities in UP, where matters concerning the overhaul of the universities would be taken up.

"The idea is to have a two day session with MHRD officials and all other stakeholders present so that we can have exhaustive discussions about measures to improve the prevailing conditions, including appointments of VCs and registrars where there are none," Katheria said.
