The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) and Indian Army renewed the IGNOU-Army Education Project (IAEP) agreement. The first five-year MoU was signed on May 24, 1999, and has since been extended regularly.

Regional Services Division (RSD) of IGNOU works as the nodal point to facilitate smooth functioning of RRCs across the country. The RRCs are at Kolkata, Chandimandir, Lucknow, Udhampur, Pune and Jaipur,” IGNOU release mentioned.
