National Institute of Design (Amendment) Bill

National Institute of Design (Amendment) Bill

The National Institute of Design (Amendment) Bill, 2019 was introduced in Rajya Sabha by Mr. Piyush Goyal, Minister of Commerce and Industry on July 30, 2019. 

The bill seeks to amend the National Institute of Design Act, 2014, which declares the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad as an institution of national importance. The Rajya Sabha had cleared the bill during the previous session. Earlier, these institutes came under the Societies Registration Act and did not have the power to issue degrees or diplomas.

The bill seeks to declare four National Institutes of Design in Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Assam, and Haryana as institutions of national importance. On being declared institutions of national importance, the four institutes will be granted the power to grant degrees and diplomas.
