Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has announced the extension of re-registration dates for the January 2024 session until March 10. This extension provides eligible candidates with additional time to apply for admission to IGNOU's diverse programmes. Aspiring students can complete the application process by visiting the official website at ignou.ac.in.

The institute conveyed the update via social media, stating that the admission dates have been prolonged for all programmes offered in both online and open and distance learning (ODL) modes. Interested candidates can now apply for these programmes by paying a late fee of Rs 200.
