The University planned to start the distance education centre this year. A committee was appointed to look into this matter. Presently, the External Department of the University is functioning as the centre of distance learning. The officials of the University said that they had sent the proposal to UGC six months ago. The authorities of the University are taking regular follow ups. So far, there hasn't been any response from UGC.
Mr Sanjay, Head of the Committee who sent the proposal said that it takes two-three months for the approving of the proposal. The UGC sends a team of its officials to inspect the University and submit the report. The University is likely to receive approval for the next academic year.
The distance education centre in this region will help the rural students to pursue higher education. The varsity can open distance learning centres in various cities once they get approval. A total number of 10,000 students are pursuing various courses in the External Department of the Varsity. The students are eagerly waiting for the DEC.
Cool, interesting and funny. An ardent lover of animals and gets a kick out of Chetan Bhagat and Amish Tripathi novels. My favourite novel is 'The God of Small Things' written by Arundathi Roy.
