In West Bengal, the same rules were applied up-to Madhyamik level school. But the grip of the rules of N.C.T.E. was kept loose because of lack of B.Ed Schools and Institutions in West Bengal and also the numbers of candidates acquiring 50% marks in Degree Course is few. So, if School Service Commission of West Bengal follows the rules of N.C.T.E. then it will become hard to fill the vacant laying posts of Teachers and keeping this in view Central Government have relaxation in few terms and conditions such as— cut-off of 50% marks and non-requirement of B.Ed Course but TET will remain active. However this cut-off is up to 31st March 2014 after which 50% marks and B.Ed will become compulsory for candidates willing to become a Teacher.
