Material Production and Distribution Department (MPDD)
In this age of information and technology, the importance of open and distance education is increasing day by day with a mandate of any one, any time and where. That is, with the help of technology, learners can get excellent education sitting at a distance. At present the university is conducting 92 traditional, vocational, technical and employable courses.

Apart from this, it also undertakes the activity of printing the required number of materials, storing these materials and controlling its stock and sending it to the concerned units (course wise and medium wise). In MPDD 90% of the work is automation based.
