After getting admission in IGNOU the second most important need is the books for study for exams. There is a number of students who look for IGNOU books after taking admission in IGNOU. These IGNOU syllabus textbooks are provided by IGNOU through postal service. However, this is also a reality that most of the time books are short with IGNOU and many students are not able to receive the books from IGNOU.
If you don’t get it by postal then you have to register yourself for SMS alerts from Ignou official website IGNOU(www.ignou.ac.in) then you will be notified accordingly by IGNOU. Besides that, you can also get to know the exact date by enquiring your regional centre officials. As per our experience, you can get them in and around 3 months time from the start of your session.
If still fails to get IGNOU Books then, I advise you to visit your Regional Center and contact the Authorities. They will give you information about how to get your books. Don’t forget to carry your Student ID Card. Because without that, they won’t entertain you. If they sent your books to the study centre, then you need to contact the Study Center Authorities. To know your study centre, please read the confirmation letter you received after getting admission.
Daily we get many complaints from IGNOU Students regarding not received IGNOU Books. IGNOU4U Team suggests them to wait and meanwhile you can download ignou study material online and save it to your desktop or laptop. This will save your time and you can at least start your reading and research work of your course subjects
