IGNOU Learner Support Services
IGNOU Provides support services to its learner via Learner Support Centre (Study Center)  and Regional Centre (RC). LSC is the most important linking node of the University for the learners as it offers an interface between the learners and the University by providing various sensitive academic and administrative support services, for the maintenance of the quality of the services of the University.
LSCs works as a part timer functionaries for IGNOU without causing any hindrance to the normal functioning of the host institution. Programmes of the University are activated on the basis of viability in terms of enrolment, infrastructure and academic expertise (faculty) available for providing support services to the learners at that LSC.

Student Support Service is heart of any Open Distance Learning system. IGNOU, in order to provide individualized support services to its learners, the University has created a number of Study Centres throughout the country for this Programme. These are administratively coordinated by the Regional Centres. The Study Centres are the contact points for the students on all major aspects of the Programme. These include counselling sessions, practicals, reference library facilities, disseminating information and advice, facilities for audio-visual training aids and teleconferencing.

IGNOU Regional Centre is the sub-office of the University and it is the regional face of the university. It is also supposed to serve as a resource centre of the University in the region.Apart from being regional academic and administrative hub of the University, RC is also a focal point of enquiries pertaining to academic programmes of IGNOU and its activities and important node for every kind of grievance redressal.

Enquiries are regularly received from prospective learners, enrolled learners and general public. In other words, the learners, either enrolled or willing to get themselves enrolled, need some basic information regarding programmes run by the University, course material, evaluation, counselling and various other support services  entire structure of IGNOU and all its mechanisms are geared to facilitate learners’ learning. In such a vast system with such large enrolment, there are possibilities of lapses in the provision of services.

To work effectively on the various portals of the Government of India, namely CPGRAMS Portal, UGC on line Portal, INGRAM, Delhi Govt.
