Distance Education is an established and recognized mode of education which is in consonance with changing socio-economic needs and emerging demands of the knowledge era. Keeping up with the spirit of Open University system and in the view of long-standing demand of heterogeneous groups of students’ community, the Directorate of Distance Education (DDE) of Maharshi Dayanand University, Rohtak (MDU), was established in the year 1988. Over the years, DDE has expanded tremendously in terms of programmes, enrolment and study centers with the basic objective to provide wider access to higher education as the conventional system was proving to be unable to cope with the ever-increasing demand. It has started running 37 wide spectrum of courses and imparting education to more than 60,000 students through various University approved centres.
In fact the success of the overall corporate image of DE Institutions of MDU can be easily witnessed by its 15th rank in Distance Education Universities in India. On this verge, the recognition of reaching the sky- scraping heights of huge success goes to Honorable Prof. R.P. Hooda, Vice- Chancellor, Prof. Narender Kumar Garg, Director and Dr. M.M. Kaushik, OSD of Maharshi Dayanand University.
