Director General Defence Estates

National Institute of Defence Estates Management (NIDEM) is a premier training institute engaged in imparting training to Indian Defence Estates Service officers and staff of Defence Estates Organisation in Defence Land Management and Municipal Administration of Cantonments spread across the nation. NIDEM has come a long way since its humble beginning at Meerut in 1982.

Today, after moving into a new campus with state of the art facilities in 2018, NIDEM finds itself better equipped to impart training to the new recruits and in service officers and staff of Defence Estates Organisation. NIDEM has also evolved into a resource centre for training officers of different government bodies both inside and outside the Ministry of Defence in the fields of Land Management and Municipal Administration.  

NIDEM also organizes training and workshops for the officers of the Army, Navy, Air-Force, Indian Cost Guard, HQ IDS, NTPC, DDA, NDMC, DPSUs, Indian Postal Service officer trainees etc. on Land Management.

A Centre of Excellence for Satellite and Unmanned Remote Vehicle Initiative (CoE-SURVEI) has been established at NIDEM. Shri Rajnath Singh Hon’ble Raksha Mantri inaugurated the Centre of Excellence on 16 December, 2021 to leverage the latest technologies in land survey such as satellite imagery, drone imagery and geo-spatial tools for effective land management and urban planning.

The primary objective of CoE-SURVEI at NIDEM is to build and nurture the technical and functional competencies of the officers and staff of the Defence Estates Organization in the emerging technologies like Drone survey and Satellite imagery based surveys. Since the establishment of CoE-SURVEI, most of our officers and staff have been trained on RS & GIS based technologies and drone survey techniques. At the institutional level it focuses on the overall organizational capacity building and enhanced functioning capabilities besides quickly adapting to changes.

Proper training gives the officers and staff, all the required skills to discharge their duties efficiently and ethically to meet   the  standards of professional excellence required for management of Defence Land of the country.

On the behalf of the Department, I wish great success in the future endeavours of NIDEM and CoE – SURVEI.
