Abstract: The primary goal of this study is to identify and investigate the relationship between teaching competency (TC) and students' learning satisfaction (LS), which will further be tested for mediation by the teacher-student relationship. A self-structured questionnaire was used to collect data from students chosen randomly from the universities and colleges of the National Capital Region of India. Out of 350 filled questionnaires, 300 were complete in all manners and found fit for the analysis. Several statistical tools like factor analysis, mediation, and bootstrapping were employed to achieve the objectives. The results indicated a strong positive relation between TC and LS. Furthermore, the teacher-student relationship mediated the relationship between TC and LS. Therefore, research suggests TC and teacher-student relationship as antecedents of students' learning satisfaction. The empirical findings expand existing knowledge on the relationship between these constructs.
