It seems like somone in the IGNOU embezzled the funds meant to print courseware into buying books from outside. Someone who did'nt get a share in the loot brought the CVC (Vigilance Commissin) in and during the inquiry the violation of the DEC rules came to light....who suffers ..the STUDENTS.

But the DEC chairperson has suggested that the students should not suffer because of the University...so there's some hope. This issue is probably similar to DU's earlier much hyped computer courses and the recent Amity controversy. In both cases the students got their due....but who knows...if we would get thitd time lucky or not?

Hi ppl,
Welcome to the harsh realities of Indian education system.......
THE UNIVERSITY DOES SOMETHING WRONG SOME CENTRSL BODY SND IT GETS INTO FIGHT WHO SUFFERS THE STUDENTS...............................
SOME PEOPLE LEAK PAPERS IN SOME EXAMINATION THE BOARD DECIDES TO CONDUCT RE EXAMINATION WHO SUFFERS STUDENTS.........................
THE PROBLEM IS THAT IN INDIA THE STUDENTS ARE IN NEED EDUCATION AND UNIVERSITIES ARE NOT ..SO IT HAS BECOME A EDUCATION HAS BECOME A COVERT BUSINESS WITH HIGHEST MARGINS AS COMPARED TO ANY OTHER..
I SINCERELY HOPE THAT THE PROBLEM OF IGNOU STUDENST GETS SOLVED ...ITS UNFAIR AND UNJUST FOR THEM TO SUFFER FOR WRONGDOINS OF SOMEONE IN UNIVERSITY

I also read this news in mroning but one thing i want to discuss:


DEC guidelines also state that Ignous BCA and MCA programmes are de-recognised and as per 1995 gazette notification, students, both past and current, are not eligible for Central government jobs.



Is it that students will not be eligible for Central government jobs? I think thats the point.

Very ...true
For me the situation is even worse..I did not do any other regular course as this IGNOU - BCA was recognized and I did make a decent career in the IT industry ..but now it seems its all going to go to the dogs....Try to find out from others who have done or are doing BCA\MCA and see what is going on..I am trying as well...

It is really a worrying factor mate as I along with the regular BBM has simultanously completed BIT from IGNOU and took lateral admission in the 3rd Sem of MCA which is currently on.

Ignou under a cloud for borrowing study material
Future Of 3.5 Lakh Degree-Holders At Stake

By Manash Pratim Gohain/TNN

New Delhi: Over 3.5 lakh BCA and MCA students of Indira Gandhi National Open University (Ignou), who have passed out since 1995, may now find that their degrees hold no merit.
Following a complaint, the Central Vigilance Cell (CVC) found that Ignou has been procuring study material for its masters and bachelors (MCA and BCA) programmes from outside the university. This is against the guidelines of the Distance Education Council (DEC).
As per the guidelines, universities offering distance learning programmes must first develop study material and get it approved by DEC.
However, the CVCs intensive examination report on procurement of books on computer, offset printing, art board and maplitho paper by Ignou said that since 1995, the open university has been offering BCA and MCA without developing its own study material.
DEC guidelines also state that Ignous BCA and MCA programmes are de-recognised and as per 1995 gazette notification, students, both past and current, are not eligible for Central government jobs.
S C Garg, pro vice-chancellor, Ignou, said: These decisions were taken in 1994. But for the last three years, we have been using our own study material for MCA. We will soon have our own study material for BCA as well.
However, according to Ignou sources, the study material is far from being ready. In July 2005, Ignou had purchased MCA books worth over Rs 92 lakhs.
On the recognition of these courses by DEC and the future of students, Garg said: Our BCA and MCA are recognised by AICTE. Interestingly, Damodar Acharya, chairman, All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), refuted the claim.
We dont recognise any BCA courses, he said. On the study material for MCA courses, Acharya said AICTEs Board of Studies will look into the matter. Meanwhile, Ignou Swaraj Basu, director, DEC, said: Students should not suffer because of the universitys actions.
The CVC report questions Ignou on why it took 10 years to develop study material and why it decided to procure the books rather than letting the students procure it for themselves.
