Despite unrest on the campus, Jawaharlal Nehru University still remains the top university in India alongwith the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bengaluru that was adjudged the overall best institution in the country.
The 2018 ranking of top institutions by the HRD Ministry ranked the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT-M) as the best engineering college and the Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad (IIM-A) as the best management institution.
The ministry’s annual national institutional ranking framework (NIRF) has put Delhi University’s Miranda House as the best college and the St Stephen’s College as the second.
While JNU was ranked the highest, BHU comes next among the national universities. Delhi’s AIIMS was adjudged the best medical college, IIT-Kharagpur and National Law School of India University, Bengaluru topped in their respective architecture and law categories.
The top 10 institutes are: IISc, six IITs in Madras, Bombay, Delhi, Kharagpur, Kanpur and Roorkee, JNU, BHU and Anna University.
National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research, Mohali, Jamia Hamdard and Punjab University were ranked as top pharmacy colleges.
This is the thrid edition of NIRF rankings and 2,809 institutions have participated in nine categories — overall, universities, engineering, colleges, management, pharmacy, medical, architecture and law.
Overall, 301 universities, 906 engineering institutions, 487 management instites, 286 pharmacy colleges, 71 law institutions, 101 medical institutions, 59 architecture institutions and 1,087 general degree colleges have participated in the ranking.
“The parameters used for India Rankings 2018 are broadly similar to those used in previous years. However, some of the sub-parameters have been further tweaked for greater robustness and accuracy. In particular for evaluating Research Impact, parameters for quality of publications have been enhanced to include the number of highly cited papers,” said the HRD Ministry in its statement.
The performance metrics have been optimized 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.
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 subjected to extensive scrutiny for consistency and correctness by a team of experts, said the ministry.
From next year, participation in the national institutional ranking framework (NIRF) will be made mandatory, said HRD minister Prakash Javadekar while announcing the rankings. “Those public institutions which will not take part in it will face fund cut,” the human resource development (HRD) minister added.
