The Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry’s ‘India Ranking Report 2016’ has released the top universities, management, engineering and pharmacy colleges list. This first-of-its-kind indigenous ranking framework for higher education institutions is in response to global rankings in which Indian universities and colleges usually do not fare too well.

The ‘India Rankings 2016’ were put together with the participation of 3,500 private and public institutions, which were ranked by National Bureau of Accreditation (NBA) based on five criteria — teaching and learning resources, graduation outcome, perception, outreach and inclusivity and research productivity. All institutions were judged based on self-disclosure of information.

While Indian Institute of Science Bangalore (IISc) tops the list, institutions such as Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Hyderabad Central University (HCU), Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) and Visva-Bharati, which have been at the centre of major controversies, have also fared well.

    The ranking of University and Ins utes based on self reporting is not desirable, resulting into the one which are field of dirty politics, have been placed at the top. The five criteria — teaching and learning resources, graduation outcome, perception, outreach and inclusivity and research productivity are out of including qualities.
