Abstract: Teachers are the backbone of any educational institution and responsible for quality education, a good teacher can produce good student but Indian institutions are very poor in terms of quality teachers, in spite of having well qualified faculty members in their institutions. There is always a question mark about quality teaching. A teacher with good academic records may not necessarily be a good teacher hence there should be a reliable technique to evaluate teachers quality for financial and administrative decision making .An institute management can take proper decision about teachers after choosing best teacher in their institution and also assign new responsibilities based on their quality. Fuzzy AHP is a multi criteria decision making technique which is frequently used to find out ranking and can be applied to find out teachers ranking ,the quality of teacher is fuzzy in nature hence fuzzy AHP approach can better deal with this situation and finally decide ranking of the teachers based on the multiple conflicting criteria of the teachers. A teacher may have many qualities like communication ability, knowledge level ,interaction with students etc. but all these qualities are qualitative not quantitative which is little bit difficult to deal with traditional theory .Fuzzy logic can be used to deal this type of problem . In this research work fuzzy logic based MCDM method: fuzzy AHP is used to decide the ranking of teacher for further decision making. Data of small sample size of teachers are collected from educational institution. 
Keywords: Fuzzy analytical hierarchy process (FAHP), Multi criteria decision making (MCDM).
