UGC Banned Distance Education Banned Physiotherapy In India

Physiotherapy courses that mainly included practical training and hands-on experience will no longer be conducted through the distant mode of education.

University Grants Commission (UGC) in May banned all such professional programmes offered through the open and distance learning (ODL) mode. The directive followed after Delhi high court in April 2010 ruled that correspondence/distance education programmes in physiotherapy should not be conducted by the said institutions (against whom a case was filed by the Indian Association of Physiotherapists (IAP) in 2004) except with prior consent of the approved statutory bodies.
