Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) is soon going to set up special study centres in UP madrasas. One such centre has already been set up in a madrasa in Jalaun district of the state, informed an IGNOU official.
A special course, Bachelor of Preparatory Programme (BPP) will be introduced in these study centers. Any student completing this course can directly apply for graduation and can pursue his higher education. This scheme will encourage drop outs from madrassas to continue their studies.IGNOUE
The districts where Muslim population is more than 60% have been chosen by IGNOU to set up such special study centers in local madrasas.
