Top 10 Colleges and Universities by HRD ministry rankings

A survey of “general degree” colleges by the human resource development ministry was conducted. This is the first time colleges have been ranked. The countrywide government ranking of educational institutions has been published on Monday.

Over 3,300 institutes were considered for the survey. The institutes were marked on 20 parameters under the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF). The criteria used to rank the institutions included teaching and learning resources, research, employability, social and gender inclusivity and perception.

As per the report, Delhi’s Miranda House and Bengaluru’s Indian Institute of Science are India’s best college and university.

Loyola College in Chennai and Shri Ram College were the 2nd and 3rd best colleges in India. Delhi’s controversial Jawaharlal Nehru University was ranked 2nd among universities while Banaras Hindu University secured 3rd position. 7IITs were among the top 10 in the overall ranking category.

Indian Institute of Technology-Madras was the top engineering school while Jamia Hamdard was the best pharmacy institute. Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad was the finest management institute.

Kolkata’s Jadavpur University, whose students have also faced criticism for being “anti-national”, was ranked 5th among universities.

The rankings are crucial because government funding for institutions are dependent on them. Schools that do well in the NIRF will also be favourably viewed for greater autonomy and more international exposure, the government said.
