Message from the Registrar

The PTU distance education is a successful model of Public-Private Partnership in higher education within a public university system. The recommendations of the 11th Plan of Government of India in increasing GER from 10 to 15%, increasing enrolment in distance education from 24% to 40% and Knowledge Commission for emergence of public universities to be innovative in their approach and functioning are the guiding factors in this endeavour. We are sure to ultimately emerge as a significant contributor in fulfilling the objectives and integrating all sections of the society in the higher education net.

The tremendous response to this programme and ever increasing enrollments has always posed varying challenges of improved Governance and Administration that we continuously strive to meet. Some of the constraints will be shortly removed when the University moves to its new 75 acres of campus that has adequate infrastructure to provide enhanced student support services.

I wish good luck to all our stake holders and welcome the students joining this programme. I extend all our cooperation and commitment to make this journey worth remembering!
