Port Blair, May 8: It has come to the notice of IGNOU Regional Centre, Port Blair that some mischievous persons are using fake websites in the name of IGNOU or are using IGNOU’s domain name in a misleading way to cheat the public/ students by giving false and misleading information.  Some of the websites, unauthorizedly, may even promise online admission to IGNOU programmes.
