The Design Clinic Scheme is an initiative of the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Scale enterprises and India's premier Design institute namely National Institute of Design. The Design Clinic Scheme is structured to enhance Design awareness by exposing beneficiaries to the critical nuances of process, operation, manufacturing and business aspects of Design.
The Design Clinic Scheme has been initiated to support MSME's and to equip them with the capability of offering competitive and breakthrough products. The scheme intends to transform MSME's from Original Equipment Manufacturing to Original Design Creation and thence to Original Brand Manufacturing.
The Design Clinic scheme supports MSME's by funding design work by refunding 60% of the designer fee up to a limit of Rs. 15 Lakhs (Rs. Fifteen Lakhs only). MSMEs meeting the criteria under the MSME development act 2006 are eligible for participation.
