The Union Cabinet today approved the declaration of the National Institute of Design (NID) by Parliament by law as an 'Institution of National Importance'.
The status of 'Institution of National Importance' would authorise NID, Ahmedabad to award degree to its students.
This, in turn, may prove to be beneficial for students who wish to pursue post graduation.
This will fulfill the need to professionalize, standardize and internationally benchmark professional design education in India, so as to take full advantage of opportunities opening up for the design industry, both in domestic as well as in international markets. (ANI)
