NIRF Rankings 2020

shape Introduction

What is NIRF?
The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF), is a framework that outlines a methodology to rank institutions across the country. NIRF was approved by the MHRD (Ministry of Human Resource Development) and launched by Minister of Human Resource Development on September 29, 2015. NIRF India Ranking 2020 is the fifth edition of NIRF rankings. The HRD Ministry has made participation by public institutions in the national institutional ranking framework (NIRF) mandatory from next year. Mr. Javadekar, Union Minister of HRD (Human Resource Development) said ” “And, those public institutions which will not take part in it will face fund cut,”.

NIRF framework as mentioned above gives a methodology to rank institutions across the country. The methodology draws from the overall and immense understanding arrived by a Core Committee set up by MHRD, to identify the parameters for ranking various universities and institutions. The parameters will cover “Teaching, Learning and Resources,” “Research and Professional Practices,” “Graduation Outcomes,” “Outreach and Inclusivity,” and “Perception”.
