Dear Shivani,

Indira Gandhi Open University [IGNOU] is a National University recognized by an Act of Parliament passed in the year 1985. The degree's/Diploma/Certificates awarded by IGNOU are recognized by all the Indian Universities on par with their Degree/Diploma/Certificate.

Therefore the Ph.d awarded by IGNOU is also recognized on par with Ph.d's awarded by the Indian Universities.

Dear Shivani and Krishnadas,

The UGC doesn't approve/recognise any PhD s from 14 open universities in India(including IGNOU) any more due to concerns regarding quality standards.
Personally, I also feel that PhD should not be the degree that we can get through distance mode !!
See the following link for more info.

Thanks for information sharing

From 2009 Phd from IGNOU is not valid because this is a distance Learning Phd. So according to the rules of UGC distance learning Phd is not valid. IGNOU is going to start new rules for Phd. It is on continuation.

All are ignoring the most important fact that is Ph.d from ignou can be accomplished only after you have copleted your M.Phil from some recognised university.No doubt Ph.d from ignou is fully honoured .
