In the purpose to make education available to all underprivileged irrespective for their age, sex, caste, region, religion, IGNOU (Indira Gandhi National Open University) has developed a latest course Ability Development and Inclusive Programme to ensure that whoever wants to complete higher education can do so without any trouble. The purpose of the latest creative course is to touch every sphere of the country who does not know much about the programme offered by the university, both in distance education mode or in campus.
IGNOU is planning to sign MOU with private organization who works for the betterment of underprivileged to promote and push them towards the opportunities they have. K D Prasad, regional director, IGNOU said our BA course is very affordable and it cost just 1700 annually but people of the country might not be aware of such things. We are in the process to reach untouched area and making higher education available for everyone.
He also added in his statement that IGNOU is planning to open a career-counseling unit at YMCA on Jai Singh Road and university will conduct open house sessions to make aware to all prospective students about the programme they offer, the course content and the time duration required to complete the course. The biggest problem faced by the students of late declaration of results is also solved this time around. Latest IGNOU declared result of three lakh students within 45 days of exams, which earlier take two – three months easily.
