      The best institute for Fashion Design, with a number of alumni working well in the fashion and design industry. Design colleges can be expensive but NIFT is almost half of their fees and thrice of their ability.

      The fee structure i would honestly say that every year they are increasing a certain amount and its becoming expensive day by day, being a central govt. college its pretty much expensive. Academics of one year is near about 2 lac including hostel fee(excluding food expenses), overall for one year my expenses have reached above 3.5 lac. So, yes it expensive academically.
