About NIRF: (National Institutional Ranking Framework)
This framework lays out a technique for ranking colleges and universities across the country.
The methodology is based on the general recommendations and comprehensive understanding reached by a Core Committee established by the Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD) in order to define the broad factors for rating various colleges and institutes.
“Teaching, Learning, and Resources,” “Research and Professional Practices,” “Graduation Outcomes,” “Outreach and Inclusivity,” and “Perception” are among the parameters.
