Addressing on the occasion, Shri Vaghela called upon the students to uphold the finest traditions while they carved out brilliant careers for themselves in their chosen fields.

Shri Vaghela hoped that fears of a recessionary trend seen globally could be allayed to a certain extent in the Indian context, I also look to you, the youth, the graduates of leading institutions such as NIFT to create conditions for future growth.

The Director General, NIFT, Shri Rajiv Takru said that 2006-07 NIFT added the post graduate programme in Design Space, thereby completing its offer of master level programmes with one programme each in Design, Management and Technology.

He also announced introduction of Doctoral and Post-doctoral programmes in the current academic year thereby completing the bouquet of professional programmes as envisaged in NIFT Act 2006.

Shri Takru also informed that in year 2008 four new Centres of NIFT have been opened and inspite of the manifold increase in the number of students, the Institute could attract the best placements in the fashion industry.
