About National Institute of Open Schooling

The National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) was established in November, 1989 as an autonomous organisation in pursuance of National Policy on Education, 1986, by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India. Open Schooling was originally experimented upon since 1979 as a project of the CBSE, and was later amalgamated with the NIOS. In October, 1990 through a resolution of the Government of India, the NIOS was vested with the authority to examine and certify students registered with it, up to Pre-degree level courses.
