The Central Government has issued an order to increase the validity period of the Certificate of Eligibility of Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) to life instead of seven. Now the National Council of Teacher Education (NCTE) has also issued its official notification. Now once you clear the TET, it will be valid for life. This decision of the Ministry of Education will benefit lakhs of youth who dream of a teacher’s job. The full notification can be read by visiting the official website of NTSE at ncte.gov.in.
While issuing the order, the government had also made it clear that this order would be effective from 2011. Therefore the State Government or Union Territory Administration will take necessary steps to reschedule the validity period of TET or issue a fresh TET certificate.
