Overview

The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) was approved by the MHRD and launched by the

Honourable Minister of Human Resource Development on 29th September 2015.


This framework outlines a methodology to rank institutions across the Country. The methodology draws from the overall recommendations broad understanding arrived at by a Core Committee set up by MHRD, to identify the broad parameters for ranking various Universities and Institutions. The parameters broadly cover “Teaching, Learning and Resources,” “Research and Professional Practices,” “Graduation Outcomes,” “Outreach and Inclusivity,” and “Perception”. India Rankings – 2016 based on this framework were released on 4th April 2016.

In the year 2017, the main ranking parameters remain the same. However, there are a few significant changes in a few sub-parameters. Every large Institution had been given a common overall rank as well as a discipline-specific rank as applicable.

For India Rankings – 2019, the main ranking parameters remain the same. However, there are a few significant changes in a few sub-parameters. Also, in 2019, every large institution will be given a common overall rank as well as a discipline-specific rank as applicable.

For India Rankings - 2020, the major changes comprise the following points:

(a) NAAC-accreditation score as an extended parameter under “Perception” for University Category only; and

(b) In the Management domain, MDP was also considered along with EDP in Footprints of Projects and Professional Practice parameters.
