Emotional intelligence involves the ability to perceive accurately, the appraisal and expression of emotions, the ability to assess and / or generate feelings when they facilitate thought; the ability to understand emotions and emotional knowledge and the ability to regulate emotions to promote emotional and intellectual growth. A teacher in the classroom has to make adjustments in teaching strategies according to the nature and scope of curriculum and evaluate the success of teaching in terms of students’ growth. Teaching is an emotional practice. Teachers’ emotional commitments and connections to students energize and articulate everything that teachers do. In this investigation, with the help of Pearson’s correlation quotient, an attempt has to find out the effect of biographical factors i.e. gender, SES, Type of institution on the emotional intelligence. This investigation revealed that gender does not play any role in development of emotional intelligence; also type of institution does not have any effect on emotional intelligence.
