Distance learning PhD programs are gradually gaining importance among the employed academic community. Due to the establishment of quality online education facilities in India research scholars can now pursue teaching or academic jobs while studying. Deserving scholars generally give up further specialization mid way due to work pressures and the inability to attend regular college after a while. Quality distance research and doctoral courses have changed that.
