NIRF - 2023

Ranking promotes competition among the Universities and drives them to strive for excellence. The rankings assume significance as the performance of institutions has been linked with the “Institutions of Eminence” scheme. 

Higher Educational Institutions currently placed in the top 500 of Global Rankings or top 50 of the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) are eligible to apply for the eminence tag. Institutions with the eminence tag would be allowed greater autonomy without having to report to the University Grants Commission (UGC). They would be able to admit foreign students and recruit faculty from abroad and follow a flexible course and fee structure to enable them to vault to the ranks of the top Global Institutions.

The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) was launched on 29th September 2015 by MHRD and announced the NIRF India Rankings to Higher Educational Institutions continuously. In view of the importance being given to the NIRF India Rankings, Institutions' participation in the NIRF India Ranking process is increasing year after year.

An institution’s position in NIRF India rankings is a key element for collaboration of Industry, funding Agencies, Research Organisations and Government Departments

The parameters used for NIRF Ranking broadly cover:

1. Teaching, Learning & Resources

2. Research and Professional Practice

3. Graduation Outcomes

4. Outreach and Inclusivity

5. Perception
