The government today released the National Institutional Ranking framework (NIRF) India Rankings 2018 in various categories on the basis of performance of higher educational institutions. The idea behind these rankings is to promote quality in education and encourage competition to perform better and to set up new benchmarks of performance in higher education space, said HRD minister Prakash Javadekar while releasing the report.

In this third edition of India Rankings, a total of 2809 institutions had participated in nine categories. Collectively, they had submitted 3954 distinct profiles, some in multiple disciplines/categories. This includes 301 universities, 906 engineering institutions, 487 management institutions, 286 pharmacy institutions, 71 law institutions, 101 medical institutions, 59 architecture institutions and 1087 general degree colleges. New categories like law, architecture and medical were also added in this year’s rankings.

India Rankings 2018 have ranked institutions in the disciplines/categories mentioned above, and have also provided a common overall rank across all disciplines for those institutions which have more than 1,000 enrolled students.

The parameters used for the rankings were broadly similar to those used in previous years. However, some of the sub-parameters were further tweaked for greater robustness and accuracy. In particular, for evaluating research impact, parameters for quality of publications were enhanced to include the number of highly cited papers, (that is, number of papers lying in the top 25 percentile of citations) in addition to the usual parameters of publications per faculty and citations per paper.

The performance metrics were optimised to provide a good discrimination over a large range of possible values. All research related information, including publications, citations, highly cited papers and even patent information about institutes was collected from third party databases to obtain an objective and unbiased picture. For this year’s perception inputs, a large database of eminent academic and industry peers and employers was deployed.

The data received from both institutional and third party sources were subject to extensive scrutiny for consistency and correctness by a team of experts. The rankings list includes 100 institutions each in the overall, university, engineering and general college categories, and 50 each in management and pharmacy, 25 in medical and 10 each in architecture and law. Four institutions, which could not easily fit into any of the above categories, were chosen for a special mention for excellence on a few parameters like research etc.
