It is a highly welcome step in the direction of taking education to the doorstep of those who are willing to acquire higher education but being unable to continue education due to lack of resources or paucity of time. External education system fulfills the needs in education to the distant learner who has been engaged is service, business, working in the various fields and who has been a drop out of the education process. In India external education opportunities at the university level have increased enormously. Most of the conventional universities have been running external education programmes on the campus.
