Spread in over 20 acres, the new NID will have an investment of over Rs.160 crore. It will offer under-graduate and post-graduate courses to over 500 students.

"This institute would provide world class design education and training to the professionals in the field of animation, films, exhibitions, graphics, products, Ceramic and Glass, lifestyle and furniture and interior design.
