In order to classify the status of educational institutions, the Union Ministry of Human Resources Development (HRD) has released the Indian ranking 2016.
India Rankings 2016 is the country’s first exercise to rank the higher educational institutions in the country based on objective, identifiable parameters.
While releasing the Indian ranking 2016 Smt. Smriti Zubin Irani HRD minister said, that history has been made as National Institutional Ranking framework (NIRF) is the first of its kind. She said that one of the biggest challenges in the higher education sector have been that citizens who engage with these institutions feel that there is no level playing field in terms of transparency and the data that they need from these institutions with regard to the choices they, specially the students, need to make.
She further said that, this kind of ranking would empower citizens as it would endow them with the power as to how they observe the institutions to be. Some 60000 observers gave their views about how our present institutions are. She added that these rankings would also help in reaching benchmark of international excellence. The rankings will also help students make informed choices about the institutions they want to join.
