Teacher Education is one of the important components of the Indian Education system. Thus the significant place held by a teacher in the whole process of education can never be overlooked. At present, B.Ed. is generally taken as a fall-back option for a career. Therefore, there seems to be a dire need to explore the various issues related to the curriculum of a two-year B.Ed. program. The descriptive survey method was used for collecting data. A sample of 50 B.Ed. teachers, 36 females, and 14 males were taken from 08 colleges of Bijnor (Uttar Pradesh) and 02 colleges of Pauri Garhwal district (Uttarakhand). Self-constructed questionnaire was used for collecting data. The analysis of the data revealed that curriculum should be redesign and restructured, the availability of infrastructure in teacher training colleges does not speak of something different to that of satisfaction related to curriculum, faculty in ten colleges was not according to the norms and regarding the Internship program, the majority of the teachers believed that the present system is vague, there are no specified points as to what activities are to be done.
