PARLIAMENT BILLS

The National Institute of Design (Amendment) Bill, 2019


KEY HIGHLIGHTS OF THE BILL

  • The National Institute of Design (Amendment) Bill, 2019 was introduced in Rajya Sabha on July 30, 2019. 
  • The Bill seeks to amend the National Institute of Design (NID) Act, 2014, which declares the National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad as an 'Institution of National Importance'. 

  • The Bill seeks to declare four National Institutes of Design in Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Assam, and Haryana as institutions of national importance. 
Currently, these institutes are registered as Societies under the Societies Registration Act, 1860 and do not have the power to grant degrees or diplomas. If they are declared institutions of national importance, the four institutes will be granted the power to grant degrees and diplomas.

By bagging the tag of 'Institute of National Importance', these institutes will contribute in producing highly skilled human resource in design industry which in turn will boost the employment generation within the sector.
