At an event organised here, HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank said, “India has traditionally been known for leadership in education and teacher preparation. For thousands of years, Indian teachers were considered as Vishwa guru.”

Ms. Ray said around 19,000 teacher-training institutes across the country were mapped and put on Google Earth. “Users can go online not only to see the geographical location of these institutes around the country but also to check their report cards and give their feedback,” she added.

“Teachers are the pillars of society, but it is important to upgrade their skills and ensure that they are trained in the best way. This is only possible in collaboration with teacher education institutions, which play a key role in their actual transformation,” he said.
