IGNOU Distance Learning Program

As per the recent notification released by the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), the B.Tech and Diploma in Engineeringdegrees awarded by IGNOU till 2011-12 will be considered as valid. Earlier, these two degrees were offered by the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) as a distance learning program. However, the program was later discontinued by IGNOU as AICTE scrapped the distance learning programs in Technical Education. As per the norms stated by AICTE & UGC, the Technical courses which are offered in Distance Learning mode could not be considered as valid.

This was stated by the Policy and Academic Planning Bureau of the Technical Education Regulator. This means that the degreed of the candidates who were enrolled in the Distance Learning Program offered by IGNOU till 2009-10 will be considered as valid.
