Swami Vivekanand National Institute of Rehabilitation Training and Research (S.V.NIRTAR) is an autonomous Institute functioning under the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment of India. It is located in Olatpur, 30 km from Cuttack and Bhubaneswar.
The Institue was conceived to provide manpower to the Artificial Limbs Manufacturing Corporation of India and created in the name of Directorate of Artificial Limbs Fitting Centre (DALFC) in March 1974 and started functioning at Safdarjung Hospital, New Delhi. When the Institute was shifted to a rented place in Safdarjung Enclave, its name was changed to Central Institute of Prosthetic and Orthotic Training (CIPOT).

Following the offer of available land at Olatpur by former Orissa Chief Minister Nandini Satpathy during former Indian prime minister Indira Gandhi's visit to Orissa, Indira suggested Balu Sankaran, Professor Emeritus at St Stephens Hospita and family surgeon to Indira Gandhi to study the feasibility of starting the Institute in Olatpur. The Institute was shifted from New Delhi to Olatpur in November 1975 and started functioning from 3rd December 1975 following the recommendations of Balu Sankaran. Subsequently the name of the Institute was changed from CIPOT to National Institute of Prosthetic and Orthotic Training (NIPOT) in 1976.
