Description of the flag

The flag of the Indira Gandhi National Open University (obtained from is blue with the logo in white.
Paul Bassinson, 7 June 2023

In the photograph linked above, the flag is shown along with the national flag and a blue ensign, either the Indian State Ensign or the Indian Naval Reserve. Looking at the video posted on Twitter, it appears to be a blue ensign with the Indian national flag in the canton and the IGNOU logo in the lower fly. It's not clear what purpose this flag has, though it may have something to do with the fact that Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) is an arm of the Indian Government, with the President of India as the university's chancellor. Is this blue ensign representing the university as an official part of the Indian Government, while the other one represents the university as an educational institution? Or is the blue ensign related to the fact that the President of India, in her role as University Chancellor, is giving the Commencement address?
