Centres of the Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University (YCMOU) will be created across the nation with permission from the UGC.
If a plan to have a facility in neighbouring Goa turns out to be a success, Maharashtra Higher and Technical Education Minister Uday Samant said on Friday.
He said centres would also be set up in Kolhapur and Belagavi for Marathi-speaking people living along Maharashtra- Karnataka border.
Sub centres would be set up to cater to places like Raigad, Thane, Nagpur, Amravati, Akola, Yavatmal and Washim etc, Samant said.
The work of the proposed sub-centre of Savitribai Phule Pune University in Shivnai in Dindori taluka of Nashik district will start soon, the minister added. PTI COR BNM BNM
