Regional Centre

|
History

Situated in the heart of the City of temples, IGNOU Regional Centre Jammu started its operations in the year 1998 in response to an invitation from J&K Govt. to establish a Regional Centre for J&K in Jammu in order to help the downtrodden and unreached populace of the State to take advantage of Open Education through distance mode until a separate Regional Centre was established in Srinagar in the year 1999. Regional Centre Jammu started its journey with one Learner Study Centre and has now established a network of more than 50 Learner Centres spread across the length and breadth of the entire Jammu Region including Doda, Kishtwar, Bhaderwah, Bhalessa, Surankote, Sunderbani, Rajouri, Gool, Kathua, Samba, R S Pura, Udhampur, Chhatroo, Patnitop, Ramban where some of the Learner Centres are in the remotest parts of Poonch and Doda District as far as 350 kms. We have the privilege of having our Learner Centres in several Jails in our region imparting Education to prisoners free of cost.
