I was trying to apply online for an Ignou course but the online admission system seems to have some problem. Has this been suspended? If yes then for what reason and by when is it expected to be back up again?

Dear Honney Singh,

This service is temporarily disabled. May be due to some technical issues like payment gateway etc.

Unfortunately we find the technical advancements in services of ignou are not taking off as smoothly as in the case of a number of other universities. The huge size of the university may be the issue. Let us hope for the best.
