Education made easy with Ni-On


Samir Sachdeva | March 25, 2010

NIOS Online (Ni-On) project initiated online admissions to National Institute of Open Schooling through its website / . With the online admission application form students were able to submit their application anytime from anywhere in India without involving any outside agents or accredited institutions (AIs).

The process facilitated students faster and direct access to admissions to NIOS. The students now had a choice of study centre which was extended on First Come First Serve basis through the computerized system thereby stopping the malpractices adopted by the accredited intuitions.

The project also facilitated the online payment of fee using credit card / debit card and facilitated direct interaction of students with NIOS. The students were able to address their problems using the online grievance redressal   mechanism.

The system lead to better delivery of other services as the admission data was simultaneously made available for generation of student identity card, dispatch of study material, allocation of examination centres etc. Even students were also able to access the status of their application through the website.  
The interactive website provided the results of NIOS examination, the hall tickets/admit cards of NIOS students, student's admission status, on-line course materials, interactivity through e-mail, sample question papers, marking schemes, syllabus and related information to the students at the click of the mouse.

The project ensured transparency and efficiency in operations of NIOS in the areas of admissions, accreditations and examination. It also facilitated the concept of On Demand Examination System (ODES) whereby a student can appear in an examination at a specified centre on date of his choice through an online admission process.
