Dear Student,

Though the merit list and final result of NIFT were released on June 25, 2020, the cut-off and counselling process is still pending for NIFT, Chennai. The premier institute of design has not announced the dates for the rest of the schedule yet. The NIFT cut-off for B.Des is most likely to be out in July/August and candidates can check it online.

To get a better grip of the B.Des admission through NIFT, take a look at seat matrix & reservation policy of NIFT. You are advised to be patient and keep visiting the NIFT cut-off and NIFT counselling process pages from time to time. 

NIFT offers a limited number of seats for B.Des admissions each year. To keep your options open, you can also fill up the CAF (Common Application Form) or you can dial 1800-572-9877 (toll-free). An admission expert will help you connect with the college of your choice!
