National Institute of Design strives to encourage, creativity and innovation, which in turn leads to generation of intellectual property. Protection of Intellectual Property (IP) so generated is necessary to provide security, stimulation and incentives for sustained and enhanced output.
The IPR Cell offers all assistance and guidance for filing of IPR, preparation of documents, and IPR-related support in commercialisation of the products if needed after obtaining the IPR. Entire cost of obtaining IPR is borne by the institute.
NID’s IPR Cell was awarded as the “Best IP Campus of the Year – 2019 under Non-Legal Category” by Intellectual Property Protection Organisation for their notable contribution in the field of IPR.

About NID's IPR Cell
Role of NID’s IPR Cell
- The IPR Cell offers all assistance and guidance in case of filing of IPR, preparation of documents, and IPR-related support in commercialisation of the products if needed after obtaining the IPR.
- If the IPR Cell finds a student’s product already existing or already applied for, it would inform the student accordingly and not proceed with the matter.
- The Institute, through the IPR Cell, reserves the right, without providing a reason, to not file a student’s product for IPR.
Possible reasons for not agreeing to file a students work for IPR could be:
- the product is in a space which is socially sensitive or controversial and where it might be portraying a message unacceptable by current public health norms (eg, smoking)
- the product is in a space where protection might actually hamper free dissemination of the product (eg, generic drugs) through open source.
- The IPR Cell, through the Institute, would bear the entire financial burden of obtaining the IPR. No payment of any kind is expected from the student for any part of the IPR application process.
