India’s Commerce & Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman introduced the Footwear Design and Development Institute (FDDI) Bill, 2017 in the Lok Sabha on March 14 to declare FDDI as an Institution of National Importance (INI).

“The objective of the proposed legislation is to facilitate and promote teaching, training and research in all disciplines relating to design and development of footwear and leather products and to enable FDDI to emerge as Centre of Excellence meeting international standards,” reads a statement issued by the Government.

The Footwear Design & Development Institute was established in 1986 with the objective of providing trained human resource and assistance to the sector. FDDI has pan-India presence with campuses at Noida, Kolkata, Chennai, Fursatganj (UP), Rohtak (Haryana), Chhindwara (MP) and Jodhpur (Rajasthan) equipped with state-of-the-art academic facilities and infrastructure.
