4 NIDs to be tagged Institutions of National Importance soon

(Rptg, correcting last para)

New Delhi, Sep 12 (UNI) To encourage designers of the country, the Cabinet on Wednesday has given its approval for introduction of Bill in Parliament for amendment of NID Act, 2014 to include the four new National Institutes of Design (NID) within the ambit of the NID Act, 2014 and to declare them as Institutions of National Importance (INIs) at par with the NID, Ahmedabad.

These NIDs would be National Institute of Design, Amaravati/Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh; National Institute of Design, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh; National Institute of Design, Jorhat, Assam and National Institute of Design, Kurukshetra, Haryana.

Some minor amendments to the Act including consequential amendments considered necessary namely, to re-name NID Vijayawada as NID Amaravati and nomenclature of Principal Designer as equivalent to Professor are also proposed in the Bill.

"Establishing new NIDs as Institutions of National Importance in different geographical regions of the country will help produce highly skilled manpower in design which, in turn, will create job opportunities, both direct and indirect, by providing sustainable design interventions for crafts, handloom, rural technology, small, medium and large scale enterprises; and outreach programmes for capacity, capability and institution building," stated by Railway Minister Piyush Goyal at the cabinet briefing.
