Recently, the Ministry of Education released the India Rankings 2022 instituted by the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF).


About National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF):

  • The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) was approved by the Ministry of Education in September 2015.
  • National Institute Ranking Framework or NIRF is the first-ever effort by the government to rank higher education institutions (HEIs) in the country. Before NIRF's launch in 2016, HEIs were usually ranked by private entities, especially news magazines.
  • This framework outlines a methodology to rank institutions across the country. The methodology assesses broad parameters for ranking various universities and institutions:
    1. Teaching, Learning, and Resources (TLR)
    2. Research and Professional Practice (RP)
    3. Graduation Outcomes (GO)
    4. Outreach and Inclusivity (OI)
    5. Peer Perception (PR)
