Patna NIFT starts classes with 60 students

The formal functioning of the NIFT Patna started on time. The classes began on schedule after an orientation programme held last month

Patna: The National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) branch in Patna has started its classes with 60 students from different parts of the country joining the course, officials said Tuesday.

"The formal functioning of the NIFT Patna started on time. The classes began on schedule (August 4) after an orientation programme held last month," NIFT Patna Academic Head Sanjay Srivastava said.

Out of the 60 students, 30 are pursuing a Bachelors of Design in fashion communication. The rest have signed up for a Masters in Fashion Management.

Srivastava said that faculty members from NIFT in New Delhi, Hyderabad and other campuses were teaching the students here.

The institute will operate out of a temporary campus—a Bihar Industrial Area Development Authority building near Gandhi Maidan in the heart of Patna—this year, until it has a campus of its own.

The Government of Bihar had last week approved the allocation of Rs 58.6 crore for setting up the NIFT building.

"The amount will be spent on the NIFT's infrastructure, including building and equipment. Of the total amount approved, Rs 27 crore will be spent in the current financial year," an institute official said.

In May this year, the cabinet had approved free-of-cost transfer of 10 acres of land from the agriculture department to the industries department for establishing the NIFT branch, which will be the ninth in the country.

NIFT has branches in Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Kolkata.

NIFT , Fashion Design Selection

The counseling for Fashion Design at NIFT for the FY 2010-11 was conducted in the month of June'2011.
Students who short listed and were awaiting for the 12th class results which was withheld were asked to come with their marks card.When they came with marks sheet to New Delhi  the member present in the counseling Hall rejected stating it was already late.
Candidates who selected under purely under reserved category are supposed to be allotted the seat.
This is very serious issue which IS BEING ADDRESSED for not allotting seat to and OBC reserved candidate
Further many seats under domicle are left vacant without filling it.
Now I request the HRD ministry to look into the aspect and see that seats are alloted to the deserved candidates.


I want to know about the fashion designing course, its fee structure and everything about it.
