100 acres to be allotted for NID in capital region
Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Friday said that 100 acres would be allotted in the Capital region for the National Institute of Design (NID) that started functioning on the premises of the Acharya Nagarjuna University, in Guntur district.
Construction of permanent buildings for the NID had already been entrusted to the National Buildings Construction Corporation, he said.
Meanwhile, the State government has resolved to expedite land acquisition for the proposed National Investment and Manufacturing Zones (NIMZ) at Kalikiri in Chittoor and Valmikipuram in Prakasam district and expansion of Krishnapatnam port. It also laid renewed emphasis on promoting industries in areas falling under the Visakhapatnam - Chennai and Bangalore - Chennai industrial corridors. The future course of action pertaining to those projects was discussed in a meeting organised by the Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) here on Friday.

NID to come up in Secretariat neighbourhood in Amaravati
The National Institute of Design transit campus at Acharya Nagarjuna University in Guntur district.
The National Institute of Design (NID) is most likely to be one of the iconic structures in the neighbourhood of the secretariat building which was inaugurated by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Monday. The land for the Central institute is already allocated on the Secretariat boulevard and the construction of the building will be completed by 2018, according to a top official at NID.
Speaking to The Hindu at the Rain Tree Park, a residential apartment cluster that houses most of NID students and faculty near Acharya Nagarjuna University (ANU), Prof. Paresh Chaudhry, Incharge Academics at NID, said, “The land is allocated in Amaravati. I’ve seen the map where NID is marked in the neighbourhood of secretariat building. It’s centrally located in a beautiful eco-friendly location with a lake on one side and greenery on the other side.”
At present, the NID is operating in the transit campus within ANU. The Central institution has already completed one year and the first batch of students will be receiving their certificates by the end of May, according to Prof. Chaudhry. “We are on track now and the next batch, with 60 students, is all set to start form June. The all India entrance examination is already conducted,” he said.
The government is also keen on completing certain iconic structures around the secretariat shortly, according to a top government official in AP.
As of now, there are four NIDs in the country including the one in Amaravati and three more are expected to come up in Punjab, Assam and Madhya Pradesh in the coming one year. While India has fewer than 10 design institutes, China has over 400 such institutes.
Coming to the demand for design professionals, there are ample opportunities according to market experts. There is a dearth of talent in design applications in several industrial segments such as realty, aeronautics, communication devices, automobile and user interface of systems.
“It’s a combination of science and aesthetics. There are tremendous opportunities for the students in the segment. Communication design and space design for cities are the most sought after aspects in the segment in India. Cities like Amaravati can be designed in such a way that no one needs to consult anybody for directions. It’s the need of the hour in India,” said Prof. Chaudhry.

NID’s Amaravati campus construction to start next year
Officiating Director says 50 acres has been allotted near IGC at Velagapudi
Construction of the National Institute of Design (NID)’s permanent campus at Amaravati is likely to commence next year with an initial investment of ₹65 crore. It has already been allotted 50 acres near the Interim Government Complex (IGC) at Velagapudi in Guntur district, said NID-Vijayawada Officiating Director Pradyumna Vyas.
Addressing mediapersons along with Udayant Malhoutra, Chairman of the Governing Council, here on Friday Mr. Vyas said NID-Ahmedabad is the mentoring institution for NID-Vijayawada which is in the process of admissions for the third batch of undergraduate courses in industrial, communication and textiles and apparel designing commencing in July 2017 at its transit campus in Acharya Nagarjuna University (ANU).
Three full-time teaching staff members have been inducted and 10 more are likely to come before July 2017. The campus works have been awarded to the National Building Construction Corporation Limited.
Mr. Vyas said there were plans to introduce Information Technology (IT)–integrated designing course in near future and set up an innovation centre and an incubator for start-ups at a later stage as the first few batches of students start passing out of the institution, which is an autonomous body under the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion.
“The NID is looking forward to partnering in information designing for the capital city and in other forms as it grows into a world-class city over the years. Our final year students do projects sponsored by industries and also municipal bodies. This is where the NID can probably collaborate with the State government,” Mr. Vyas added.
Mr. Malhoutra, who is the CEO and Managing Director of Dynamatic Technologies Limited, said the NID was lucky that its foray into A.P. came at a time when its capital is being constructed and the city (Amaravati) happens to be India’s most modern city.
“NID could lend its expertise in building the city in such a manner that it is liveable and healthy. India had been a ‘design leader’ for hundreds of years but there is little design in the buildings around us. A lot of things can be done in that area,” observed Mr. Malhoutra, who worked as the Chairman of CII’s National Design Committee.
