These are the top 10 institutes of India

HRD minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’, today released India Rankings 2020 of Institutions of Higher Education in various categories on the basis of their performance on five broad categories of parameters. This is the fifth consecutive edition of India Rankings of the institutions of higher education in India. This year, one more domain – Dental – has been introduced, bringing the total tally to 10 categories/ subject domains.

While releasing the report virtually, the minister said that these rankings acts as a guide to students for selection of universities based on a set of criteria and helps universities to improve their performance on various ranking parameters and identify gaps in research and areas of improvement. He added that the ranking of Institutions at national level instill a competitive spirit amongst institutions to perform better and secure higher rank in international ranking.

The ranking framework evaluates institutions on five broad generic groups of parameters:

  • Teaching, Learning and Resources (TLR)
  • Research and Professional Practice (RP)
  • Graduation Outcomes (GO)
  • Outreach and Inclusivity (OI); and
  • Perception (PR)

Ranks are assigned based on total sum of marks assigned for each of these five broad groups of parameters.

Besides, sourcing data on various parameters from applicant institutions, third party sources of data have also been used, wherever possible. Scopus (Elsevier Science) and Web of Science (Clarivate Analytics) were used for retrieving publications and citations data. Derwent Innovation was used for retrieving data on patents. Data retrieved from these sources was shared with the institutions for transparency with a provision to give their inputs.

A total number of 3,771 unique institutions offered themselves for ranking under ‘Overall’ category-specific and/ or domain-specific rankings for India Rankings 2020. In all, 5,805 applications for ranking were made by these 3,771 institutions under various categories/ domains, which included 294 universities, 1071 engineering institutions, 630 management institutions, 334 pharmacy institutions, 97 law institutions, 118 medical institutions, 48 architecture institutions and 1659 general degree colleges. A noticeable increase in institutional participation in the rankings exercise this year indicates its recognition amongst institutions of higher education in India as a fair and transparent ranking exercise. Number of unique applicants to India Rankings has increased from 3,127 in 2019 to 3,771 in 2020 whereas total number of applications for ranking in various categories has increased from 4,873 in 2019 to 5,805 in 2020, that is, total increase of 644 unique institutions and 932 total applicants.

As a matter of practice, 200 institutions are ranked in engineering discipline, 100 institutions are ranked in overall, university and college categories, 75 each in management and pharmacy, 40 in medical and 20 each in architecture and law and 30 institutions are ranked in dental for the first time. Additional rankings in suitably bunched forms are also being provided. Data for ranked institutions were painstakingly verified, inconsistencies, contradictions and outliers were screened and identified, which requires a lot of diligence, patience and tactful handling of institutions.
