Nominations are open to full time chemistry teachers who teach either classes 11 and 12, bachelor's degree or master's degree courses (and equivalent). There are also special awards for the best teacher under 35 years old and the teacher who best makes chemistry engaging for students and takes it beyond the classroom. 

Ramakrishnan Mukundan, managing director for Tata Chemicals, said: 'With the tremendous nationwide response received in the past, we are excited to launch the third series of the award. The BCTA awards recognise the efforts of teachers who are responsible in creating awareness and educating the younger generation about the intrinsic presence of chemistry in everyday life and its role in meeting modern day challenges. We at Tata Chemicals believe that chemistry is fundamental to the sustainable development of human society and this is in line with our mission of serving society through science.'
