SRINAGAR: IGNOU Regional Centre Srinagar formally inaugurated its new office building at Saida Kadal Rainwari, Srinagar. The formal inauguration was done by the Honorable Vice Chancellor of IUST, Prof. Shakeel Ahmad Ramshoo. The function was attended by students, staff, civil society members, and media personnel.

Prof Shakeel congratulated IGNOU RC Srinagar for taking the much-needed step of shifting the office from Rajbagh to Saida Kadal, as there was no public transportation facility available in the Rajbagh area. Consequently, students coming from North, South, Central Kashmir, Leh, and Kargil regions were facing difficulties. He stated that the shifting is in the interest of the learners and other stakeholders since it is well-connected with different modes of transportation and now located in an area where premier educational institutions of Kashmir are situated.

He also expressed his happiness with the different services created for the learners in the new building and the comfortable workspace for the staff. Dr. Shahnawaz Ahmad Dar, Regional Director, IGNOU Regional Centre Srinagar, stated that they are confident that this change will allow them to enhance their Student Support Services and meet the expectations of the learners.

Dr Shahnawaz also informed that IGNOU has started the admission process for its various academic programs for the July 2023 admission cycle. Some of the recently launched programs include Master of Arts in Migration and Diaspora (MAMIDI), MSC in Information Security (MSCIS), MA in Journalism and Electronic Media (MAJEM), MA in Journalism and Digital Media (MAJDM), Masters in Urdu (MAUD), PG Diploma in Environmental Management and Law (PGDEML), Post Graduate Diploma in Agribusiness (PGDAB), and various degree programs in several academic disciplines (general, honours, and skill-based).

Dr Shahnawaz said that information regarding the newly launched and other programs offered by IGNOU is available on the official website of IGNOU in a common e-prospectus for July 2023, which is also available on the IGNOU Regional Centre Srinagar website. Desirous students can use the Samarth portal of IGNOU to take admission (which is completely online) in any of the programs offered by the university for the July 2023 admission cycle.
