There is a printed proforma for change/correction of address and change of Study Centre provided in the Programme Guide given/sent to the admitted learner alongwith the study material in the very first lot of despatch. In case there is any correction/change in the address, the learners are advised to make use of proforma provided in the Programme Guide and send it to the Regional Director concerned who will forward the request after verifying the student’s signature to SR&E Division, Maidan Garhi, New Delhi - 110068. Requests received directly at SRD, New Delhi will not be entertained. The form of change of address can also be downloaded from IGNOU Website www.ignou.ac.in. Learners are advised not to write letters to any other officer in the University in this regard. Normally, it takes 4-6 weeks to effect the change. Therefore, the learners are advised to make their own arrangements to redirect the mail to the changed address during this period. In case a change of Study Centre is desired, the learners are advised to fill the proforma and address it to the Regional Centre concerned. Since counselling facilities are not available for all Programmes at all the centres, learners are advised to make sure that counselling facilities are available, for their subjects, at the new centre they have opted for. Request for change of Study Centre is normally accepted subject to availability of seat for the programme at the new centre asked for. Change of Address and Study Centre are not permitted until admissions are finalized. Similarly, change of Study Centre is not permissible in programmes where practical components are involved.
