    Interior designers are not regulated by the government in India since they are considered to be self-employed professionals. Since there is no regulation, some people choose to get their design training from a reputed institution while others learn only on the job. One always has to remember that without sufficient experience, they cannot expect to command handsome pay. This means that it is necessary for all aspiring interior designer professionals in India to have experienced initial years of practical learning before deciding on an appropriate course of action.

    Interior designers need a license to practice in India and is regulated by the Architect's Act of 1972. The general requirement to be eligible for practicing as an architect is that they will have completed an architecture course from a registered institute, pass the architecture qualifying examination (also called pre-qualifying exam), and also obtain membership in the regulating body (the Institution of Architects. To get this membership, one needs to successfully complete all the courses prescribed by Council Regulation 6E or 8G). A member can serve on about 60 committees at any given time! The term tenure for membership approved through nomination is 10 years, after which it needs to be renewed (via election) for another 10-year stint.

    Yes. Interior designers in India requires a mandatory license for set-up and operations, which can be obtained by doing a three-month course from the National Council of Educational Research and Training that is approved by Central Board of Technical Education. This license needs renewal after five years. The course has been designed to be models of the current trends in design, along with observing past examples. Design jobs in India are lucrative enough for there to be an extreme lack of qualified designers, leading some natives to study abroad before returning home to find work.

    India has not yet adopted any new regulatory guidelines regarding professional qualifications required for interior designers. Although no new rules have been introduced regarding qualifications, it is advisable that you first ensure that your prospective employer is aware of the current laws. Some workers are paid on a per-hour basis rather than on commission, so be sure to ask about payment before you accept any position. Most interior designers who work daily with contractors must have an architectural qualification if they are working as site supervisors or architect's representatives.

    No, no license is needed for interior designers. Interior designers do not need any sort of license in India. They can be self-taught or take a degree in Interior Design and work independently. The only thing they'll need is the support and knowledge from an experienced professional if they're willing to start with something on their own. However there are many different types of licenses depending on the type of business you want to open such as restaurant or beauty salon license etc).

    As an Indian, this is a question I'm very excited to answer. Interior designers in India do not need a license for their work. However, it's important to note that during the planning stages of construction and remodeling projects, architects and engineers will often include interior designer plans into their own plans. It is these people who then do need a license in order to legally pursue construction or engineering practices. A 2009 Supreme Court ruling acknowledges the role of interior design and architecture and requires these professionals to perform all architectural services in accordance with governmental building codes and professional ethics requirements before obtaining final compensation from clients.
