Dispatch status of IGNOU study material
Study material is usually sent from IGNOU’s main campus, Maidan Garhi, Delhi, and sometimes from the relevant regional center at which the student is admitted.
Students have the option of choosing digital books or physical books for their study material. In either case, candidates need books to prepare for their assignment questions. IGNOU books also cover the full schedule of each program.

If the delivery status of your books is not yet available, wait and check after a few days.
The books will be sent to the student’s address. Sometimes the books are also delivered to the relevant regional center. You can verify this both in your regional center and at the post office. Your regional center will need your IGNOU identity card to provide you with the books.
