Meanwhile, the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore was ranked as the country’s premier university in the NIRF 2020 listings. New Delhi’s Jawaharlal National University (JNU) and Banaras Hindu University (BHU) stood at the second and third positions.

Every year, the HRD ministry releases the NIRF list, rating education institutes across the country based on their performance. The objective behind this ranking system is to encourage institutes to compete against each other and simultaneously work towards their growth. In addition, these rankings also attract foreign students, providing a solid base for the ‘Study in India’ programme.

The NIRF rankings are normally released in April every year, however, this time there was delay due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Pokhriyal in his address also spoke about the poor ratings in this year’s global rankings, including Times Higher Education and Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) ranking. The minister believes that both THE and QS judged Indian universities based on perception and he does not agree with it.

“I do not agree with the THE and QS ranking. Graduates of our institutes are now heading the global leading organisations. They give us low ranking based on perception and I do not agree with it,” Pokhriyal remarked.
