Indian Institutes of Technology Dominate National Rankings

Indian universities have never performed well in the major global rankings and there has been considerable concern over their validity and fairness, especially with the methodology of the Times Higher Education and QS world rankings.

In recent years the Indian government has developed the National Institute Ranking Framework (NIRF), now in its sixth year. It is hoped that eventually it will become an international as well as an Indian ranking.

The NIRF now ranks 5000 institutions according to five parameters: teaching, learning and resources, research and professional practices, graduation outcomes, outreach and inclusivity, and perceptions.

The top five institutions overall are:

  1. Indian Institute of Technology Madras
  2. Indian Institute of Science
  3. Indian Institute of Technology Bombay
  4. Indian Institute of Technology Delhi
  5. Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur.

The top university in various categories are:

Engineering; IIT Madras

Research; IISc

MBA; Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad

Medical; All India Institute of Medica Sciences Delhi

Dental; Manipal College of Dental sciences

Architecture; IIT Roorkee

Law; National Law School of India University Bangalore
