About NIRF

  • The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) is a methodology adopted by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India, to rank institutions of higher education in India.
  • There are separate rankings for different types of institutions depending on their areas of operation like universities and colleges, engineering institutions, management institutions, pharmacy institutions and architecture institutions.
  • The ranking framework evaluates institutions on five broad generic groups of parameters, i.e.
    • Teaching, Learning and Resources (TLR),
    • Research and Professional Practice (RP),
    • Graduation Outcomes (GO),
    • Outreach and Inclusivity (OI)
    • Perception (PR).
  • Rankings help universities to improve their performance on various ranking parameters and identify gaps in research and areas of improvement.
