Based on self-determination theory the study seeks to examine influence of teacher autonomy support, structure and relatedness support on amotivation of middle school students. This correlational study based in Indian sub-continent establishes that all three dimensions of teacher support (i.e., teacher autonomy, teacher structure and teacher relatedness support) reduces amotivation however teacher structure have the strongest influence. No gender and age differences were reported for the study. Study highlights the importance of reverse side of motivation (amotivation) and predicates that teacher support is essential not only in increasing motivation but also in reducing amotivation. Training teachers is necessary to increase their ability of providing autonomy support, structure and relatedness support. © 2021
