Distance Education By All Universities
According to the information furnished by Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), any university set up by the Act of Parliament/State legislature or deemed to be university can offer distance education programme subject to the fulfillment of norms and guidelines laid down by the Distance Education Council (DEC) and other apex bodies. DEC in its meeting held on March 23, 2007 had resolved that it would not insist on territorial jurisdiction to be followed by institutions in offering programmes through distance mode and on that matter universities should be governed by their own Act and Statutes.

A list of the universities including deemed universities running distance education courses is annexed. IGNOU has informed that DEC does not maintain the details of the courses offered by these universities.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Human Resource Development Smt. D. Purandeswari in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today.
