AbstractDr. B.R. Ambedkar Open University Growth and Organizational Structure // If we look at the Indian experience with regard to the starting of the Open University, we find that the State of Andhra Pradesh is the pioneer which established the first Open University in the Country. Several factors contributed to the development of idea of an Open University in India, prior to the establishment of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Open University (BRAOU), originally known as Andhra Pradesh Open University. In the early 1970s , an idea of set up an Open University at the national and the State levels emerged under the impact and influence of the UK Open University (UKOU).
