In today’s high tech world the spine of a developed society is its education system. The efficacy and strength of an educational system in turn lies upon its teachers. Effective teaching comprises of inculcating problem solving strategies, moral values and ability to make social adjustments in the tender minds of young generation. Thus teaching becomes a fulfilling journey that gives an amazing chance to shape the future of a society. It becomes quite necessary for a teacher to cultivate the habit of self-assessment, improve interactions; develop reflective strategies etc. to steer students towards healthy reflexive skills. The paper explores the various objectives, policies and implementation of policies made for the professional development of teachers in higher education departments. Since teacher education and professional development are the synonyms of each other it is better to pay attention to this field if we really want to make our education system efficient. This paper throws light on the efforts government has made by drafting policies for teacher education in India and what loopholes have been left in their implementation. There are also some suggestions to cover the loopholes left in the implementation of existing policies for professional development of teachers in India.
