Kota: 14th Convocation of the Vardhman Mahaveer Open University (VMOU) was held virtually in which the Governor and Chancellor of VMOU, Kalraj Mishra said that students should pursue value-based and welfare-oriented education.

He stated that VMOU is a model institution among the State's 28 universities. He stated that the State government's top priority is the establishment of a university for physically handicapped students.
