    First of all you have to understand that the courses for distance education should be approved with DEC i.e. Distance Educational Council. UGC only give its approval to award degrees. But DEC approval is must for awarding Distance education degrees. Sikkim Manipal University is approved with UGC but its approval for DEC has expired.

    There is no any approval of DEC to Sikkim Manipal University for offering distance education. You can see it in DEC website. Go to www.dec.ac.in and in the left list there is a tab Recognition related information. Go to this tab then you will see the recognition of universities for offering distance education.

    In this you can see whether university recognition is currently have or not or expired. SMU distance approval has expired. Better you to go with IGNOU which is govt. university as well as best distance education University in India. Also its MBA is approved with AICTE.

    Otherwise if you want direct admission then you can go to :-

    1. Periyar University, Tamilnadu
    2. Anna University, Tamilnadu
    3. Karnataka State Open University KSOU, Karnataka
    4. IASE Deemed University, Rajasthan etc. Best of luck.

    Sikkim Manipal University has no more recognition to award any distance education certificate so its better you go for some other University such as Lovely professional university, Amity university or Symbiosis university.

    If you check on the DEC website then you will get to know that Sikkim Maipal license is expired and hence it is no more a authorized university. Distance education is always good but if you will go for such university who is not recognized then you will face difficulty in getting jobs so its better to go for some better option available.

    Best Distance education universities in India are :-

    1. Symbiosis University
    2. Lovely professional university
    3. Amity university
    4. NMIMS University
    5. Pune University
    6. Mumbai University
    7. Rajasthan University
    8. Jaipur National University
    9. Delhi university
    10. Osmania University

    The process would be like this :-

    1. First of all you have to select the college which you want to choose for your MBA.
    2 Get one admission form and fill the form with along with your educational certificate photocopy
    3. The you will receive a notification from the college about your admission
    4. College will send you the books and important dates
    5. The you have to study at home and the appear for the exams
    6. Once you successfully complete the course you will get the degree.

    Hope it will help
