Special Initiative for our RC Delhi-1 students

Dear students,

As you know that RC is presently closed following government instructions for educational institutions to prevent the spread of Corona virus. Hence, the staff is not coming to office and working from home. The landline numbers of RC were therefore going unattended leading to inconvenience to some of our learners.

Therefore to facilitate our RC Delhi-1 learners and to maintain a good connection with them even in this lock-down period due to COVID-19, we are releasing four mobile numbers of our RC to serve you better even in these difficult times.

NOTE THE FOLLOWING & FOLLOW:

01). This facility is only for our learners of RC Delhi-1.

02). These mobile numbers are separate and dedicated to different Levels of IGNOU Programmes, viz., Masters Degrees; Bachelors; Diplomas and PG Diplomas; and Certificate Level Programmes. You are requested to dial the number ONLY as per level of your Programme.

03). When you are connected, pl tell your Name, Enrollment number and Programme to our staff so that they may provide you exact required information
.
04). These four mobile numbers will be available from tomorrow onward during normal working days/hours, i.e., Monday to Friday, 9:30am to 6:00pm. Lunch time from 1:30pm to 2:00pm.

05). If you find your allotted number busy, kindly have patience and wait for some time because the staff might be talking to and helping some other student like you. Pl do NOT start dialing another number allotted to another level of Programme. It will create disturbance for our staff and other learners.

06). Pl do NOT ask for the information which is already available on IGNOU website like your Results, Assignment question papers, etc. Pl search these types of details on IGNOU website.

07). The Programme level-wise mobile numbers (and name of the Staff on Duty) are as follows:

* Master Degree Programmes - 9654570058 (Mr. Rakesh Kumar)

https://www.facebook.com/groups/499222844072708

Dated: 10th June2020

Ref No. AL/IGNOU/0742-D/COVID-19/Online -15


Dear students of RC Delhi-1,

It is notified in supersession of all previous circulars regarding assignment submission by email by the learners of IGNOU RC Delhi-1. Due to the several issues/queries of the learners regarding their inabilities to send scanned file of hand written assignment by email, file size limitations, non-receipt of their submitted assignments, chances of missing of their assignments at any stage of assignment processing, and also for the smooth handling of the bulk of assignments received through emails by RC and LSCs staff and the concerned Academic Counsellors, a Google Form link is created as follows:



Please note that:

1.You may download Assignment Questions from the link: https://webservices.ignou.ac.in/assignments/

2. Learners are requested to check IGNOU Regional Centre website and Regional Centre Facebook page for last date of assignment submission, if you have submitted your scanned copy of assignments earlier by email at any of the emails of IGNOU RC Delhi-1, then also you are required to re-submit the same assignment file in pdf on this link (https://forms.gle/5Kj9C1353LnqBdq79). You have to submit the assignments of each course separately. Means, for example, for submitting assignments of two different courses, you have to fill this Google Form two times.

3. Those learners who have already submitted the hard copies of their assignments at their respective LSCS, they need NOT to re-submit their assignments again on this link.

4. You are advised to submit a pdf file of scanned copy of only the handwritten assignments. Each page of your assignments must carry your signature OR name and enrolment number. Don’t submit the same file again and again for the same course.

·          Programme Code:
·          Course Code of attached assignments:
·          Mobile number:

6. For each Course, their assignment responses should be scanned in ONE single pdf file. Means, if there are 10 questions in one assignment, there should NOT be 10 separate pdf files of these 10 
answers. These should be scanned in ONE single pdf file for easy uploading and downloading

7. Name of the pdf file should be in the Unique Format, i.e., “Enrolment Number and Course Code”. For example, for MS01 assignment, pl. send the scanned copy of the handwritten assignment response in one pdf file with the File Name: 2001218290MS01.

EID Greetings


After observing a month-long tough fast, Muslims celebrate Eid when the lunar position is right. The celebrations involve an elaborate feast and gathering of friends and family members. But with the coronavirus pandemic, this year the celebrations will be a little different. While people will still be cooking their elaborate meals, the celebrations with friends and family will mostly happen over video calls. While we all are maintaining social distance

Article Series on Mental Health during COVID-19 - 2 dated 21-04-2020


In the present pandemic situation, when many of us are working from home, the physical boundaries between the work place and home has virtually disappeared. The change in the work environment might have led to difficulties in managing your work targets as well as family responsibilities at same space and pace. It is a challenge to maintain a balance between professional and personal front currently. Such a challenge has increased concerns over health, fitness, occupational stress and the difficulties in combining work and childcare among employees. However, the current situation has given us an opportunity to spend more time with our personal relationships and family and we all are united today, with a common situation of working from home.

It can be said that problems and difficulties are similar among all of us but it depends upon our attitude, mind- set, adaptability and commitment towards dealing with individuals and situation. The current situation has given us an opportunity to think differently. All of us need to understand that no one is alone. We are opportune to fulfil our targets in more dedicated way with more focus now. Following are few of the tips that can be followed to maintain balance between work and home, even while working from home:

1. Space management: Keep a corner completely for your official work. The space will help you to maintain distance from house hold matters.

 2. Time Management: While working from home, you need to distribute your time, so that you can devote enough time to your work as well as your family members in a fair and just manner.

3. Health Management: Being at home there is an ample chance, to get yourself involved in binge eating. You need to understand the relevance of maintaining your physical health with proper exercise and balanced diet even while working from home. This will help you to remain active throughout the day. Always remember morning and evening walk can also be done within the house premises or at your balcony.

4. Self- Management: Earlier researches have indicated that proper dressing and self-presentation while doing the official work leads to a mind-set, readiness to work and productivity. So, you need to manage yourself accordingly while working at home.

 5. Taking Breaks: You need to give yourself a break even between the time span of working. Too much involvement in work might produce a feeling of being stuck at your own home. You need to understand when to “stop” yourself, to prevent from taking much stress. Even giving a gap of five to ten minutes of unplanned time between the official work and home related work might refresh and energize you

Being positive and satisfied is the need of the hour in the present time. Hence we need to have a clear demarcation between our home and work responsibilities while staying at home itself. A clear schedule regarding this will help us build up an appropriate mindset, facilitating work-life balance and accepting the present situation positively.
