Because of this reason, teaching jobs for M Tech passing out students is also getting saturated.

There can be situations where you have teaching as the only option after your M Tech. In that case also, it would be really good if you can focus fully in updating yourself in the area of your interest and try to impart the knowledge you gain from learning.
In India, this is the real need of the hour. Most of the graduates in tier 2 and tier 3 engineering colleges are not exposed to the latest technologies and the applications that use the concepts learned in the class room. Being a teacher after MCA, my sincere request is to learn more as long as you are in the teaching profession and then try teaching what you have learned.
