National Institute of Design (NID)

The National Institute of Design (NID) is a design school in Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Jorhat and Gandhi Nagar India. The other NIDs are in Kurukshetra (Haryana) and Vijayawada (Andhra Pradesh). The institute functions as an autonomous body under the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India. NID is recognised by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research under Ministry of Science and Technology, government of India, as a scientific and industrial design research organisation. As a result of the Industrial Policy Resolution of 1956, the government of India invited the design team of Charles and Ray Eames to recommend a program of design to serve as an aid to small industries in India. On the basis of their document, 'The India Report', the government of India set up the National Institute of Design in 1961 as an autonomous national institution for research, service and training in industrial design and visual communication. The Sarabhai family, especially Gautam Sarabhai and his sister Gira, played a major role in establishment of this institute. Designer and sculptor Dashrath Patel was its founder secretary. He held the post till 1981, and was awarded the Padma Shri in the same year. The institute has three active campuses, Main Campus- Ahmedabad, Post Graduate Campus - Gandhinagar and the third one is R&D Campus - Bengaluru. Other three new NIDs were established by Government of India in 2015 and later. The National Institute of Design, Gandhinagar is an extension campus of National Institute of Design.
