IGNOU Induction Meeting

“There are many students who interrupt their studies to earn for their family. They have a desire to improve themselves and also there are knowledge seekers. Distance education provides them such an opportunity. Thus, distance education has a large socio-economic relevance. IGNOU has a major role to play in this transformation process of our society into a knowledge society through their value added distance education system.”
