Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Indian Army for establishment of IGNOU-Army Community Colleges, which will lead to an exponential increase in its total student enrolment. The student enrolment is expected to rise from 25 lakh in 2009 to 37 lakh in January 2010.

IGNOU's Vice-Chancellor, Professor V. N. Rajasekharan Pillai made the announcement in order to emulate the initiatives taken by the university to celebrate its silver jubilee year starting November 19. Today, learners enrolled for the university range from as low as 18 years to as high as 90 years of age including school drop-outs, factory workers, farmers, prisoners in Tihar Jail, and sex workers.
