National Institutional Ranking Framework Document and Web portal
Oct 01, 2015

National Institutional Ranking Framework Document and Web portal were launched recently in New Delhi. The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) for educational institutions would meet a felt need for a framework that would enable parents, students, teachers, educational institutions and other stakeholders to rank institutions on the basis of a set of objective parameters and a transparent process.

Main Parameters

  • Teaching learning and resources

  • Research, consulting and collaborative performance

  • Graduation outcomes

  • Outreach and inclusivity

  • Perception

Key Features

  • Developed by a team of experts in education and heads of institutions, the portal and the framework are presently available for engineering and management institutions.

  • Soon, methodologies, parameters and process for ranking universities along with architecture and planning institutions would also be available online.

  • It will follow an Indian approach which considers India-centric parameters like diversity and inclusiveness apart from excellence in teaching learning and research.

  • This framework for engineering and management institutes will be extended to other disciplines like architecture, pharmacy and humanities and for universities very soon.

  • The NIRF will facilitate a level playing field in ranking for institutions which have been working in languages other than English and excelled relatively in the recent past.

  • NIRF is an outcome of a need identified by the Hon’ble Prime Minister and a consequent suggestion to evolve a national ranking framework.

  • The ranking framework is designed such that institutions belonging to different sectoral fields such as Engineering, Management etc. will be compared separately in their own respective peer groups.
