If you want to teach in school, then the minimum eligibility is Graduation and B.Ed course. If you want to teach in a government school, then you have to separately apply for the vacancy announcement from the Education department of the Government concerned.
BSc from IGNOU is recognised degree and there will no problem as far as eligibility is concerned for teaching jobs. I would strongly recommend a Masters degree if you can do and then go for a job. Doing Masters will be of long term benefit for you.
Have you decided that you only want to teach in government school? If this is so, what is the reason?
I would suggest you to make yourself eligible for the higher level, then you can choose where to teach.
