In a globalised society like that of today, the need for quality based higher education has been on a constant rise. As companies become more competitive in a changing world scenario and new fields emerge, the demand for qualified professionals increase exponentially. This case becomes even more important for a developing country like India where government policies are aimed at attracting more and more corporate firms. However higher education has been able to reach only 19% of our population. Blame it on family obligation or other external factors, the bare minimal figures inflict much pain since more than half of India’s population is based in the age bracket of 18-35 years. In this regard Distance Education has been able to come in and bridge much of the gap in reaching out to the population not touched by regular institutions.
