Message From Director General
Shri. Rakesh Kumar Verma, IAS
Commissioner-cum-Director, Industries and Commerce and Director General, NIIFT.
Northern India Institute of Fashion Technology, Mohali was initiated by the Govt. of Punjab, in 1995, aiming to provide groomed and nurtured professionals to the garment industry. Without mincing any word, I take the pleasure of saying that today NIIFT is an established name in the fashion world where industry looks forward to having manpower from this unique and leading institute. Apart from playing a leading role in fashion education, NIIFT possesses a strong hold in academic learning. Teaching at the Institute involves a cohesive and contextual environment for learning. The emphasis is on professional development providing a competitive edge by using standardized pedagogy. The evaluation system aims at enhancing students' knowledge, competence and encourages self improvement. The close monitoring of students' evolution as a professional is properly taken care of. No wonder, NIIFT students get absorbed in the Industry/ Export Houses through campus placements which maintain an enviable record of cent percent. Due to dedicated, devoted and highly educated staff & faculty, NIIFT is expending and progressing by leaps and bounds. NIIFT has its two centres at LUDHIANA & JALANDHAR that are running successfully. I can assure you that enormous and unparallel opportunities await at NIIFT for the students whose uncanny knack is developed, moulded and given a final shape for brilliant careers. I welcome you to be a part of this emerging and fascinating profession.
