Why is CTET a must have to become teacher?

Clearing CTET has become a prerequisite for anyone, who wants to teach in recognized schools.
According to Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, clearing CTET is mandatory for:

  • Central Government Schools
  • Schools under administrative control of Union Territory of Chandigarh, and Andaman and Nicobar Islands
Government has made it optional for following schools to consider CTET:
  • Schools, which are owned and managed by state government and local bodies — where Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) is compulsory
  • Unaided private schools
However, CTET becomes important for the above mentioned schools also as:
  • State government schools, which do not consider TET, will have to consider CTET
  • As CTET is conducted by CBSE, it is expected to be adopted by all CBSE affiliated schools.
  • State government of Delhi has already made it mandatory in January 2012 for aspiring teachers to clear CTET.
  • Schools might also ask their existing teachers to clear the test, in order to continue their profession.
