The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), was established in the country in the year 1985 under the act of the Parliament.

  • Those who are unable to attend regular course classes because of their financial and other possible constraints.

The university is recognized and accredited by University Grants Commission for Distance Education (UGC), National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE), Pharmacy Council of India (PCI), Indian Association of Physiotherapists (IAP), Council of Architecture (COA), The Institution of Engineers (India), All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Association of Indian Universities (AIU).
