Like city-based premium institutes, including Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Centre for Environmental Planning and Technology (CEPT) University, Indian Space and Research Organization (ISRO) and MICA gave direction to formulate new ideas and solutions, now NID will be the guiding light to its counterparts.

"NID Vijaywada has got its campus in Acharya Nagarjun University in Vijaywada town of Andhra Pradesh. Our staff is there to assist them, the faculties and staff of NID will keep assisting the NID Vijaywada until a new director is appointed there” he said.
