HPU launches ICDEOL's website

Himachal Pradesh University’s Distance education arm, International Centre for Distance Education and Open Learning (ICDEOL) has launched it's own website. Himachal Pradesh University(HPU) started distance education courses in the year 1971. University now runs undergraduate, postgraduate and professional courses through distance mode. Though the program structure and content of professional courses is not as per industry standards yet HPU's well known reputation is the driving force behind the enrollments in professional and academic courses.

There have been a need for such website since long as  it's bit difficult for students from different parts of the country, especially  working professionals to visit the university campus for information/ forms.These small steps will certainly  help Himachal realize the goal of higher education.

Himachal Govt. declares Pay Arrears

The Himachal Pradesh Govt. has  decided to release the first installment of revised pay arrears of all government employees. Govt. has decided to give pay arrears in installments spread over next few years. Much to the disappointment of employees who were hoping to get in lump sum or two installments of  40% and 60% the new orders state that maximum of Rs.10,000 will be credited to GPF accounts of employees after deducting income tax and will be given in cash to pensioners. The decision of fund starved Himachal Govt. is for sure a setback for pensioners who totally rely on pension and savings. With increasing inflation, health problems at old age the lump sum amount might have given them some breather. Govt. will actually have the share of their income in the form of interest which pensioners would have earned by investing the lump sum in FD, Post office monthly income scheme etc.
