Started in 2015, NIRF outlines a methodology to rank educational institutions across the country.
The parameters used for ranking broadly cover teaching, learning and resources, research and professional practices, graduation outcome, outreach and inclusive, and perception.
From 2017, besides being ranked under specific disciplines, large institutions were also given a common overall rank.
This year as well, educational institutions across the country were ranked in nine categories – overall, universities, engineering, colleges, management, pharmacy, medical, architecture and law.
