Material Production and Distribution Department (MPDD)

In this age of information and technology, the importance of open and distance education is increasing continuously. That is, with the help of technology, learners can get excellent education sitting at home. At present the university is conducting 92 traditional, vocational, technical and employable courses. All these courses are recognized by the Bureau of Distance Education (DEB), University Grants Commission (UGC) and All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). At present, the aim of the university is to make the educational system completely student-centred, as well as to strengthen the study material production and distribution system of the university.
Material Production and Distribution Division (MPDD), erstwhile know as Book Distribution Section, is one of the most important sub-systems of distance education and open education system. MPDD Facilitates the creation and distribution of self-instructional study material for various programs and courses of the University. It functions keeping in view the availability of study material from time to time to the learners as well as to the University Study Centers and Regional Learning Centers. 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). MPDD 90% of the work is computerized.
For the distribution of the study material of the university, the arrangements of freight, freight-cart, courier and post are used. The system of delivery through the Department of Posts is a complex system, with a large number of students frequently changing their addresses, centers of study and courses, further complicating the entire process.

Prof. R. C. Mishra was the first Director of MPDD section in the year 2015. Dr. Virendra Kumar is the present OSD of MPDD section.
