The full form of NIOS is National Institute of Open Schooling.

NIOS is a central government recognized board. NIOS is recognized by UGC, State government and other technical organization for job and academic purposes.

So, yes, NIOS is recognized by University Grants Commission.

NIOS is not recognized by UGC. Because, UGC recognizes Universities, institutions and not Board of Education.

However, NIOS is setup by Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) in the year 1989.

Before this, it was started as a pilot-project by CBSE in the year 1979.

For more information, you can visit their official site: http://www.nios.ac.in/about-us/profile.aspx

NIOS stands for National Institute of Open Schooling.

Yes, NIOS board is recognized by UGC(University Grants Commission).

It is also recognized by MHRD(Ministry of Human Resource Development).

NIOS is not recognized by AICTE(All India Council for Technical Educaion); because NIOS is a nationa board that provides open schooling. AICTE's approval is required only for technical institutions and hence NIOS does not require the approval of AICTE.

Yes, candidates passed 10th or 12th from NIOS board are eligible to pursue degree or higher course from a recognised university of UGC.

NIOS is National Institute of Open Schooling and it is a recognised board under Ministry of HRD.

The certificate offered by NIOS is valid to appear for entrance examination for admission or to get recruitment in jobs.
