National Institutional Ranking Framework Document and Web portal launched by HRD Ministry

OBJECTIVE

It will enable parents, students, teachers, educational institutions and other stakeholders to rank institutions on the basis of a set of objective parameters and a transparent process.

  • Portal is presently available for engineering and management institutions.
  • Framework will be extended to other disciplines like architecture, pharmacy and humanities and for universities within the next 4 weeks.

RANKING CRITERIA

NIRF follows an Indian approach which considers India-centric parameters of diversity and inclusiveness apart from excellence in teaching learning and research.

  • The ranking framework is designed in such a way that institutions belonging to different sectoral fields will be compared separately in their own respective peer groups. The parameters are under the five broad headings
  1. Teaching learning and resources
  2. Research, consulting and collaborative performance
  3. Graduation outcomes
  4. Outreach and inclusivity
  5. Perception.
