Opening of IID Head Office at Aminjikarai

From 1974 to 2006 IID’s head office was in rented buildings in Besant Nagar, Madras, now Chennai. The cost and constant need to oblige the owners kept rising, and IID’s own building was started in 2005 and completed in 2006 with the help of overseas and Indian support. It not only accommodated the head office, but also the Community College at Aminjikarai and all of the Community College administration. With a conference room attached and a covered open space on the roof it allows IID to accommodate all central activities.
