In pursuance towards the announcement of 100 days agenda of HRD of ministry by
Hon'ble Human Sources development Minister, a brand new Policy on Distance

1. When it comes to Entry 66 of List one of the Seventh Schedule towards the Metabolic
rate asia, Parliament is qualified to make laws and regulations for that coordination and
resolution of standards in institutions for greater education for research, and scientific and
technical institutions. Parliament has enacted laws and regulations for discharging this
responsibility through: the College Grants Commission (UGC) for general Greater
Education, the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for Technical
Education along with other Statutory physiques for other disciplines. In regards to greater
education, with the distance mode, Indira Gandhi National Open College (IGNOU) Act,
1985 was enacted using the following two prime objectives, amongst others: (a) To
supply possibilities for greater education to some large segment of population, especially
disadvantaged groups residing in remote and rural areas, adults, housewives and dealing
people and (b) to inspire Open College and Learning Online Systems within the
educational pattern of the nation and also to coordinate and see the factors such systems.
2. A brief history of distance education or education through distance mode in India, goes
long ago once the universities began offering education through distance mode in the
Correspondence Courses through their Directorate/School of Correspondence Education.
In individuals days, the courses in humanities and/or perhaps in commerce were offered
through correspondence and brought by individuals, who, because of various reasons,
including small group of seats in regular courses, employability, problems of accessibility
institutions of greater learning etc., couldn't get themselves signed up for the traditional
`face-to-face' mode `in-class' programmes.
3. Recently, the interest in greater education has elevated enormously through the country
due to awareness about the value of greater education, whereas the machine of greater
education couldn't accommodate this ever growing demand.
4. Underneath the conditions, numerous institutions including considered universities,
private universities, public (Government) universities as well as other institutions, which
aren't empowered to award levels, have began cashing around the situation by providing
learning online programmes in a lot of disciplines, varying from humanities to
engineering and management etc., and also at different levels (certificate to undergraduate and publish-graduate levels). There's always some risk that a few of these
institutions can become `degree mills' offering sub- standard/low quality education,
consequently eroding the credibility of levels along with other qualifications awarded
with the distance mode. This implies a much greater amount of coordination one of the
concerned statutory government bodies, mainly, UGC, AICTE and IGNOU and it is
authority - the space Education Council (12 ,).
5. Government asia had clarified its position according of recognition of levels, earned
with the distance mode, for employment under it vide Gazette Notification No. 44 dated

access to in person teaching, working persons, house-spouses etc.
(ii)supplying chance to working professionals to update their understanding, enabling
these to switchover to new disciplines and professions and enhancing their qualifications
for a better job.
7. To be able to discharge the Constitutional responsibility of determination and upkeep
of the factors in Greater Education, by making certain coordination among various
statutory regulatory government bodies as also to guarantee the promotion of open and
learning online system in the united states to satisfy the aspirations of mix-parts of people
for greater education, the next policy according of distance education is set:
